Pot Roast

Weather has been crummy and seemed like a good meal to start the week.  Both kids and my wife have the crud on top of it.

Little smoke on the 2lb chuck

Potatoes, carrots, onion, garlic, and mushrooms take a bath with the roast.  Roast was on for smoke for about 45 min and then seared in the Dutch oven on the range.  Rolled most the afternoon around 300, lid on.

Decided rolls would go well, pulled out my grandmas potato roll recipe and had some help from the 5yo.  This was before final proof getting a coat of butter.

Finished rolls
 And plated meal with a little homemade gravy. Thanks for looking.

  • Thanks gents, by far the moistest pot roast I have had.  The rolls however steal the leftover show.

  • Thanks for the compliments.  Was a great meal and got some good leftovers.  Got up this morning and the 5yo is now running a fever, the 10 month old no longer has a fever but is snoring from congestion and my wife has bronchitis.  Going to be daddy daycare today with mom’s turn tomorrow.

    Thank you for sharing!  Thought I would share two recipes I saved from the past.

    Grandpa's Grub:

    And, this one from @Spring Chicken  and Spring Hen.  When I asked about the ingredients, Spring Hen mailed me a pack of the McCormick Beef Stew Seasoning.  One of the things that made my introduction to egging on the original forum so positive!  I couldn't find the original thread link....

    If you really want good pot roast, just go to any bbq joint here in Iowa and order the brisket.
