Favorite Pot Roast – Positive Faith/Powerful Results

Our family loves this pot roast. Millie calls it stringy meat and she usually asks for it when she comes for a visit. I call it comfort food. I remember when we lived in Manhattan and I prepared it to take to our friend Kathryn who had just had a baby. We lived in an apartment, and my husband and I walked the ten or so blocks carrying the pot roast, tossed salad, bread, and dessert.  Since hardly anyone cooks in New York, we got a lot of attention along the way. When we arrived with meal in hand, you’d have thought we brought  a pot of gold, instead of a pot roast.

I recently took it to our friend Rob, and he served it to the family when Linda and the baby came home from the hospital. I’ll bet they’d call it comfort food, as well.

   Favorite Pot Roast

  • 3-4 lb. roast (rump, shoulder, or whatever)
  • 3 cloves garlic, slivered
  • 1 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
  • pepper to tast
  • 2 tsps. chili powder
  • 1 tblsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 stick margarine
  • 1 cup water
  • Potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces
  • Carrots, peeled and cut in bite-size pieces

Make slits in roast and insert garlice slivers. Place in roaster and cover the roast with salt, pepper, chili powder, and Parmesan cheese. Place onion on top. Put margarine and water in pan with the roast. Bake, covered, at 325 degrees for 4 hours, basting the roast every 30 minutes. After 3 hours, add potatoes and carrots and cook for one more hour.  

      Note: The leftovers make great vegetable soup. I cut up the meat and veggies and along with the gravy, I add cans of tomatoes, corn, okra, butter or green beans, and a can of beef broth, if needed. If I have barley on hand, I add that. It’s yummy!

    Definitely comfort food! What a fantastic meal… a wonderful and memorable Christmas Eve dinner! Thank you again from all of us. Rob still talks about how great this meal was, and how kind and thoughtful it was for you to come all that way to bless our family. 🙂
