Yield: Serves 8-10.

All pot roasts are not created equal. This one has a sauce that makes it better.

Ingredients:

  • 4- to 5-pound beef pot roast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup tomato juice
  • 3 medium onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup catsup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Instructions:

Rub the surface of the roast with salt and pepper. Brown in butter or margarine on all sides. Add the water, tomato juice, chopped onions, and sliced garlic. Simmer for 1-1/2 hours. Mix the remaining ingredients, add to the meat and simmer for 2 hours.


The gravy may be strained before serving, but it is very good just the way it is.

    I livened it up with a few extra spices.
