Classic Pot Roast

January 17, 2019Teresa

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!

    wow it looks so great teresa! i wonder that i can make this pot roast using chicken what do you recommend ?

      hi Mary. I think you could. I would substitute chicken broth for beef broth and bake in a roaster oven. I would probably spread olive oil over the whole chicken and then sprinkle with a dry rub or some favorite herbs like thyme, parsley, oregano and rosemary. (Rather than browning in oil first, like you do for a pot roast). Other than that, I think all the other veggies and noodles would go great for this recipe.
