Roasting a pot roast meal in a Dutch Oven is so easy and good tasting. So when it comes to the proverbial question, “What’s for dinner?” You can say a wonderful pot roast meal. Not only is it great tasting but super easy to put together. Once you start cooking with cast iron, you will love the results and easy cast iron care steps.
Just place a 3-4 pound beef roast in the Dutch Oven. I like to use a cast iron trivet in the bottom to keep the meat up from the bottom but it’s not necessary if you don’t have one. Season the meat with all goodies you like on it such as seasoning salt, pepper, onion, garlic, sage, few dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and some beef broth. I like to put all the ingredients in a large measuring cup and mix it all up and pour it over the meat and veggies.
Next add the potatoes, some slices of onion and other veggies. I used carrots and some sliced celery too. Again I like to pour the seasoning and broth over the meat and veggies before baking.
Put the lid on the Dutch Oven and bake at 325 degrees for 2-3 hours depending on the size and cut of your meat. Check the pot at 2 hours to see if done and baste the meat and veggies for added flavor.
Bottom line: A wonderfully easy and tasty one-pot meal for you and the family to enjoy.
