Pot Roast Recipe:Roasts

This is an easy oven-baked pot roast with vegetables. The aroma will make you hungry while this delicious roast bakes.

2 pounds beef pot roast, fat trimmed and discarded

3 potatoes, peeled and cut into 6 pieces

1 large onion, cut into 8 pieces

2 carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces

2 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces

3 cups water

salt and ground black pepper to taste

1 pinch garlic salt, or to taste

1/2 cup water

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon browning sauce (such as Gravy Master®) (optional)


① Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
② Place roast in a large baking pan; arrange potatoes, onion, carrots, and celery around roast. Pour 3 cups water into baking pan. Season roast with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Cover pan with aluminum foil.
③ Bake in the preheated oven until roast is browned and cooked through, about 3 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the roast should read 145 degrees F (65 degrees C). Transfer roast to an oven-safe platter. Remove vegetables using a slotted spoon and arrange around roast.
④ Reduce oven temperature to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place platter with roast and vegetables in the oven to keep warm.
⑤ Pour the remaining juices from the baking pan into a saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir 1/2 cup water and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth; pour into boiling pan juices. Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring constantly, until gravy is thick, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Stir in browning sauce.

    Just tried this tonight! It turned out great! Very tender pot roast and veggies and it made a great gravy. I used my enamel lined dutch oven instead of a roasting pan and foil. I used Kitchen Bouquet for the browning sauce. I did use 1 cup of red wine and 2 cups of water for a deeper flavor and color. I will be using this recipe again- delicious!
