We love finding old family recipes that are splattered, tattered, and torn 'cause, as you can imagine, it means they've been used over and over again. Our Old-Fashioned Pot Roast is no exception! This recipe's been passed down through generations and is full of traditional, old-fashioned goodness. When you pull this easy pot roast out of the oven, the whole house will smell just like Grandma's kitchen used to when she cooked this old-fashioned recipe up for Sunday dinner.
What You'll Need
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons salt, divided
- 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
- 4 pounds boneless beef chuck roast
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 cups water
- 1/2 cup prepared white horseradish
- 4 potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 4 carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
- 2 onions, cut into wedges
- 1 tablespoon browning and seasoning sauce
What to Do
- In a large bowl, combine flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; mix well. Rinse roast and without drying it, add it to flour mixture; coat roast completely.
- In a soup pot over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add roast and cook 10 to 12 minutes, turning to brown on all sides.
- Add water and horseradish and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover loosely, and simmer 1-1/2 hours. Add remaining ingredients, including remaining salt and pepper; cover loosely and simmer 40 to 45 minutes, or until meat and vegetables are fork-tender.
- Remove roast to a cutting board and slice across the grain. Serve with vegetables and sauce.

Believe it or not, this Chinese Cabbage 'n' Chicken Salad is a favorite in the Mr. Food Test Kitchen. It's requested at least once a month and devoured within the lunch hour. Most of us agree that it's the homemade Asian-style dressing that really makes this recipe amazing, but we'll leave it up to you to be the judge!
