Lemon-Herb Beef Pot Roast
Change up the typical pot roast dinner with the addition of complimentary seasonings, like this recipe does with lemon pepper, garlic and basil.
1 (3 to 3 1/2 pound) boneless beef chuck pot roast
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups baby carrots
1 pound small red-skinned potatoes, halved
1 medium onion, cut into 6 wedges
2 tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried basil
- Combine seasoning ingredients; press onto beef pot roast. Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium heat until hot. Brown pot roast. Pour off drippings.
- Add 1 cup water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 2 hours. Add vegetables; continue cooking, covered, 30 to 45 minutes or until pot roast and vegetables are fork-tender. Remove pot roast and vegetables; keep warm.
- Skim fat from cooking liquid. Stir in cornstarch mixture and 1/2 teaspoon basil. Cook and stir 1 minute or until thickened and bubbly. Carve pot roast. Serve with vegetables and sauce.
Makes 6 servings.
