Okay, I'm back. I think. Sometimes having four kids sucks out your brains and leaves you with either nothing to say or lacking in energy to say it.
Anyway... so how is everybody? If you've Gone Primal, how are you feeling about it?
I love pot roast. My daughter Regina is obsessed with pot roast. The other kids like it as well. I've never been able to make a delicious pot roast, so I made it sporadically. But that all changed when a friend here in Kansas suggested I Google The Pioneer Woman
So I did.
This woman is like a kitchen super-hero. She knows so many amazing tricks, tips, and how-to's in the kitchen, it is ridiculous. She's not necessarily primal. But she's awesome anyway. And it just so happens she makes a killer pot roast.
Now, it's true, there are more steps to this pot roast than to other recipes I've seen, but the end result is so worth it, you won't mind.
I am going to post a link to her blog/recipe, but here's the gist of it:
Put some fat (your choice) into a dutch oven.
Add onions (halved) (two onions)
Let them brown a bit, then take them out and rest them on a plate.
Brown some carrots (I chop about eight), rest on the plate with the onions.
Take your beef, and sear it on all sides.
De-glaze your pot with wine or broth.
Add the meat and vegetables back into the pot.
Add two-three cups of beef broth.
Sprinkle with Rosemary
And stick in the oven at 275 degrees for 3-4 hours (I used between a 3-4 lb cut of meat).
It is so delicious! I miss not having mashed potatoes with pot roast, but I suppose you could serve sweet potatoes or the fauxtatoes (mashed cauliflower) if you'd like.
So go to this link: Pot roast is yummy! The Pioneer Woman goes into more detail and has photos for each step involved, which is really helpful. :)
