Winter is all about weekend comfort foods that make the house smell great as they’re cooking away. This Best Ever Dutch Oven Braised Pot Roast Dinner with Potatoes & Carrots is a family favorite that doesn’t disappoint on flavor OR aroma!
There is nothing quite like bringing the family around the #SundaySupper dinner table with something comforting and delicious. With only a few minutes of preparation, you can enjoy the wonderfully tempting aroma of this Best Ever Dutch Oven Braised Pot Roast for hours as it cooks in the oven with minimal ingredients. For me, that’s one of the best parts of an oven braised meal! The anticipation!!
The ingredients you’ll need to make this Dutch Oven Braised Pot Roast are, one (3 pound) boneless chuck eye pot roast, light colored oil (I used grapeseed), salt, pepper, one onion, one green bell pepper, 2-3 bay leaves, one and a half cups red wine, one cup beef stock, one and a half pounds of small Yukon gold potatoes, and four to five medium/large carrots. *Please find the exact measurements along with the printable recipe card below.
Braising an inexpensive cut of meat like a chuck roast low and slow will turn your family’s #SundaySupper into a meal fit for royalty! Since this Oven Braised Pot Roast cooks in a low 300-degree oven for four to five hours (the longer, the better), the meat will be incredibly fork tender and will melt like butter in your mouth.
The anticipation of a family #SundaySupper begins with the preparation. Making Oven Braised Pot Roast couldn’t be easier. Let’s get cooking!
In a large Dutch oven, sear the roast on both sides in grapeseed oil over medium/high heat. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Remove the meat to a plate. In the drippings in the pan, add a chopped onion and bay leaves.
Add a chopped bell pepper to the pot along with red wine and chicken or beef stock.
Add the seared beef back into the pot and cover. Place the Dutch oven in a preheated 300-degree oven for 3½ – 4 hours. Remove the pan from the oven.
Add 1½ pound of baby gold Yukon potatoes that have been halved and quartered, and 4 -5 peeled and roughly chopped carrots to the pot along with additional salt and pepper. Return the lid to the pot and place the Dutch oven back into the oven for an additional 60 minutes.
To serve, scoop the meat potatoes and carrots into a bowl and scoop the pot roast out onto a large serving platter, and spoon the beef juice over top. Put away the knife, and enjoy!!
If you’re new to cooking and are wondering what exactly a Dutch oven is, it’s merely a large, heavy pot with a lid. You can find many forms of Dutch ovens in the marketplace, and some are quite expensive.
I received my Dutch oven as a gift from my eldest son for my birthday years ago. I love, love, love using it, and would challenge those much higher priced swanky French brand named pieces (I think you know the ones), to beat it.
