Ingredients

1 3-1/2 pound Chuck Pot Roast
flour for dusting
1 onion - chopped
2 garlic cloves - crushed
1/2 t dried thyme
12 small new potatoes - cut in 1/2
1 bunch baby carrots - peeled
6 small turnips - peeled, quartered
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup beef stock
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1/4 cup red wine
2 T Bacon Grease for browning (or oil)
Salt
Pepper
Water


Preheat oven to 300 degrees


Generously season meat with salt and pepper, dredge in flour shaking off excess. In a large dutch oven or large roasting pan, melt fat until hot, brown meat well on all sides and remove from pot. Add onions and brown for about 8 minutes until soft and just browning, add garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant - 30 seconds. Add both broths, wine - de-glaze pan. Stir in tomato sauce and add meat back to pot. Add enough water to bring juices up 1/2 way of roast. Cover and place in oven for 3-1/2 hours. Add veggies, submerge in liquid and put back in oven for 30 more minutes or until veggies are tender. Sometimes, I add a little flour/water mixture to thicken if I feel so inclined. Serve with crusty bread and a nice Beaujolais...

Notes

My mom always made the best Pot Roast and is still Dad's favorite to this day... I decided to make it when Fall arrived this weekend and it was so homey and satisfying that I'd thought I'd share it here.

A dash of local for every season
