On this edition of Quarantine Cooking, we’re sharing a hearty, comforting recipe that’s simple to make and that will have your friends forget about the fact that can’t go to a restaurant right now. This succulent, juicy pot roast can feed the whole family, and leave you withe leftovers so that you can be one and done with cooking for a few days (we love doing less dishes!). The total prep time takes 20 minutes, and cooks for a total of 3 hours. Here’s how to make this tasty recipe at home. Enjoy!


Homemade Roast



What you’ll need:

  • Chuck roast
  • Garlic
  • Salt & pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 bag baby potatoes
  • Baby carrots
  • 1 white onion
  • Roaster and large skillet, to cook


What you’ll do:



1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Lightly coat your meat in salt, pepper and garlic (minced or powdered garlic), to taste.



2. In a large skillet, brown the meat for 5-10 minutes on each side. Add Worcestershire sauce for flavor.


3. Chop 1 onion into thick slices.



4. Place the meat in a roaster. Add onion on top, a dash of red wine and 6 dashes of Worcestershire to saturate the roast.


5. Add 1-2 cups of water (enough so that your roaster has 1/2″ of water on the bottom).


6. Cook in the over for 1 hour.



7. After 1 hour, take out the roaster and add the carrots. Place back in the oven.



8. After 2 hours, add the cleaned potatoes. Turn temperate down to 400°F.



9. Cook for another hour, so that your roast has been in for 3 hours total. Dish up and serve!
