Everyone’s Favorite Pot Roast

This is my favorite Pot Roast recipe that my mom and grandma have been making since I was tiny. It’s a total crowd pleaser and everyone who tries it immediately asks for the recipe! It’s the ultimate comfort food – hearty, nourishing and soooo tasty. I personally love how easy it is and that it only requires one pot (unless you add rice and cook that separately). You’ve got to try it this season!

Here’s a video of how I put our favorite pot roast together! For another delicious meal, check out my Mom’s Famous Pozole recipe for another flavorful and delicious dish.

What You'll Need:

+ Roast (any cut works but I recommend chuck roast – trim fat if desired)

+ Seasoning (generously season the meat with Lawry’s garlic salt, favorite beef seasoning – we like John Henry’s greek rub or Montreal Steak, fresh cracked pepper, course sea salt)

+ 1/2 yellow onion

+ 1 tomato

+ 3 potatoes

+ 1 lb. green beans, cleaned and cut in half

+ 4 cups beef broth

+ Splash of red wine

+ 1 cup tomato sauce (I use del fuerte or V8)

+ Extra virgin olive oil

+ 3 tsp. corn starch mixed with a little water to create a slurry to thicken


1. Generously season the roast. Heat oil on medium high heat and sear roast on all sides.

2. Add onions and tomatoes, splash of wine, beef broth and tomato sauce and bring to a boil. Cover and lower to medium heat. Let this sit and simmer for approximately 2 hours or until fork tender.

3. Once roast is fork tender add potatoes and green beans. Bring to a boil, cover, and let simmer for 15-20 minutes (until vegetables are cooked).

4. Once vegetables are cooked, add corn starch mixture and stir quickly.

5. Serve on a bed of rice or quinoa, drizzle with gravy in pot, season with fresh cracked pepper & enjoy!
