Perfect Pot Roast Recipe on the Stove Top

  • Published on Jul 14, 2018
  • Here's a perfect pot roast recipe you can cook on the stove top that is super simple and tastes fantastic. My mama likes a boneless chuck roast and prefers a beef bouillon paste for seasoning the roast, but any seasoning rub will work. Throw your chuck roast in a pot on the stove and it practically cooks itself. If you've ever wondered how to cook the perfect pot roast, look no farther
    than this recipe.

    How to Cook a Perfect Pot Roast on the Stove Top
    Buy a roast with some fat in it. Marbling in the meat adds flavor and juiciness; the thinner and richer the marbling, the better.
    For a stove top roast preparation, use a pot with a tight fitting lid and a heavy bottom.
    Season the roast generously with salt, pepper, and whatever seasonings you like. A beef bouillon paste like my mama uses in the video is delicious.
    Place the pot on the stove with just a few spoonfuls of water in the bottom and add the roast.
    Lightly brown the roast on high heat for a few minutes.
    Reduce the heat down to low, and cover the pot with a lid.
    Check the roast periodically.
    The beef will release it's flavors and cook in it's own juices.
    Once the roast cooks out it's juices, it will begin to reduce.
    About an hour into cooking, turn the roast.
    Continue cooking until the roast cooks down to it's grease and drippings.
    Remove the lid, raise the heat to medium, and brown the meat a final time in it's grease.
    Remove meat from the pot.
    Want Gravy?
    To make beef gravy from the drippings, add a bit of flour and mix well over medium heat. Stir for about
    1 minute until the flour and fat are well incorporated and the flour gets a bit of color. Raise the temperature and stir in broth or water and continue
    stirring until the mixture begins to boil and thicken, and extra salt and seasoning as desired and pour into a gravy bowl.
    And that's it!
    Give this easy pot roast recipe a try and let me know what you think, and bon appétit!

      @Mike EZ it is in stores. Sorry for the late response. It is where the beef stock/broth area. Depending on the stores. It ranges from 2-4 dollars. I live in GA though I do not know your location. So the price could be different.
