Classic Pot Roast
Classic Pot Roast is absolutely mouthwatering. I love a good pot roast recipe, and I have several of them on this blog. I have a gluten free recipe, an easy 3-packet recipe and one for the slow cooker. Plus, of course, Mom’s recipe. All are delicious, but this Classic Pot Roast recipe is different. Instead of potatoes, it calls for pasta! I love it.
Several months ago an elderly lady gave John several cookbooks for me. Anyone who knows me, knows I love a new (and good) recipe. And, since I’m an old fogey, I still enjoy looking through old or classic cookbooks. Especially ones with pictures to drool over. One of those cookbooks was an old Family Circle cookbook. Yes, it had pictures. Yes, it had some great looking recipes for me to try out, including this one.
I loved how this entree could be tossed in the crockpot. That made everything a lot easier for me since I was doing a lot that day. After the roast cooks, you make up gravy from the broth in the slow cooker. Then you cook up the pasta of your choice. The roast is served with celery, onions, carrots, mushrooms, gravy and pasta. It’s truly a marvelous recipe and one we really enjoyed.
If you want an almost effortless, but fantastic main dish meal this Classic Pot Roast is it. It’s especially comforting for dreary and drab winter days when you want to be warmed up by something special. I guarantee you’ll be salivating like Pavlov’s dogs after one succulent bite of this amazing dinner. Hey, go grab me a fork!

We loved the way this recipe turned out. It’s savory and succulent.
Pot roast, carrots, celery, mushrooms & onions smothered with gravy and served over pasta! It doesn’t get any better than this. 🙂
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Rub olive oil over top and bottom of roast. Season roast with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside.
Place onions, garlic and celery in a large crockpot.
Add mushrooms and carrots. Then place beef roast over top. Tuck in the fresh thyme and bay leaves under the roast.
Combine beef broth and tomato paste.
Pour broth mixture over top of roast.
Cover with lid and cook on high heat about 4-6 hours.
Remove lid. Set beef and vegetables on plate.
Pour broth from slow cooker into a medium sized sauce pan and cook over medium heat.
Combine flour with olive oil.
Slowly add flour mixture into gravy and cook until mixture thickens, whisking continuously.
To serve: place cooked pasta on a large platter. Add beef roast. Top with veggies and gravy, as desired.
Classic Pot Roast is wonderful comfort food during cold, winter months when it’s dreary and drab outside.
Eating Pot Roast with pasta instead of potatoes is a real treat.
