One Pot Beef Roast

One Pot Beef Roast for a Simple Dinner

The easier dinner is to make, the tastier it seems to be.  One Pot Beef Roast is a simple dinner with phenomenal flavor that the whole family will love.  Potatoes, onions, garlic, and carrots, if your pot is big enough, cook in one big pot with your roast, making dinner simple and clean up easy.  The trick to the phenomenal flavor of One Pot Beef Roast is twofold.  Searing the meat before roasting enhances the flavor while adding a rich red wine infuses the beef with a flavor unlike any other.

Choosing ingredients for One Pot Beef Roast

I always buy my beef roast on sale.  Otherwise, it’s expensive and not cost effective for my family.  So anytime it goes on sale I stock up.  Nice lean beef roast, preferably chuck, makes One Pot Beef Roast tender and tasty.  You can use any type of potato you like,  although I like tiny Yukon Gold potatoes.  Their texture is creamy and their flavor holds up to the richness of the roast.  Onions are the same way, in that you can use any ones you like.  I like pearl onions, despite the time it takes to prepare them, because they hide well with the other vegetables and even onion haters like them cooked in One Pot Beef Roast.  As for the wine, I chose a deep red wine that is dry, because of the superior flavored adds to the beef.  Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect addition to just about any beef recipe.  I always buy a large bottle when it’s on sale and keep it in my pantry for whenever I need it in my cooking.

The Best Pot for One Pot Beef Roast

I have found the best pot for One Pot Beef Roast, or any one pot cooking, is an enameled cast iron Dutch oven.  You can use it on top of the stove as well as in the oven, it distributes heat evenly and it makes fantastic food easily.  I first got an enameled cast iron Dutch oven for a chicken recipe I was making, but I now make baked pasta sauce, chili, and all types of beef and chicken in my enameled cast iron Dutch oven.  It’s definitely worth the investment.  You can find them for anywhere from $9 to over $260.  I love the Lodge Color Enamel 6-Quart Dutch Oven.  It’s inexpensive, high quality, and lasts generations.  It’s indispensable in my kitchen, especially when I get a hankering for One Pot Beef Roast!
