Googled 'Joy of Cooking Pot Roast Recipe". Is this your recipe?? This sounds amazingly delicious~~ holy moly!!


3-4 lb. chuck, shoulder, top, or bottom round; brisket, blade, or rump roast (in this general order of preference--I buy the chuck roast)
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 chopped carrot
1 c. dry red wine
1 c. meat or vegetable stock
1 bay leaf
3/4 c. sour cream


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rub roast with garlic. Dredge in flour. In a heavy pan, heat oil. Brown meat on all sides, but don’t let it scorch. When the meat is half-browned, add carrot. When meat is browned, spoon off excess fat. Boil wine, stock, and bay leaf, and add to meat. Cover and bake 3 to 4 hours in 300 to 325 degree oven, or simmer on top of the stove. Turn meat several times and, if necessary, add additional hot stock and season to taste. When the meat is tender, spoon off excess fat, remove bay leaf, and serve with the pot liquor as it is or slightly thickened with sour cream.


Happy birthday to Grandpa Larry! Now you've got me hungry for pot roast! ;-)

Catching up as was icky sick yesterday. Bother!

Your pictures are making me wish for pot roast right now! Perhaps will have to thaw one to have tomorrow on AMIL's birthday. That's our next hurdle.

Cheers for a relaxing Sunday!
