There are so many different ways to make a pot roast these days, but when you're craving something simple, nothing beats our Old-Fashioned Beef Pot Roast. This pot roast is made with just 6 ingredients. It's a great recipe for anyone making a beef pot roast for the first time or anyone looking for a basic beef pot roast to make their own.
What You'll Need
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 (3- to 4-pound) beef bottom round roast, trimmed
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 4 cups water
What to Do
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper; mix well. Rinse beef and place in flour mixture while still wet, coating completely.
In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add coated beef and cook 5 to 6 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Add water and bring to a boil.
- Cover and cook 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours, or until beef is tender and sauce thickens.
If the cover to your pot has a vent, then allow it to vent; otherwise, use a toothpick to keep the cover slightly ajar, allowing a little steam to escape during the cooking.
