The leaves are all red and gold. Have I mentioned how much I love fall here in Oregon, it makes me feel all cozy inside and out, the down side to that can be I don’t feel super productive … So last week I was planning on making pot-roast for dinner, but I forgot to season and put it in my crock-pot that morning, I totally felt lame when I got home and realized dinner was not even close to done (ever have one of those moments?). However, dinner must be made! and it worked out REALLY well (thank goodness). So here is my recipe for Quick & Cozy Pot-roast.
What You Need-
- 1med Pot-roast thawed and room temperature
- 2Tbsp Butter
- 2Tbsp coconut oil or canola oil (NOT olive oil because it will smoke and ruin the flavor of the meal)
- 1 chopped onion (medium to large)
- 1 large pot with lid that can go in the oven safely
What To Do-
- Take your roast and sprinkle salt and pepper on all sides. Turn oven to 275°
- Turn your pot on medium high heat, then add your oil.
- What you’re going to do is just brown all sides on your roast so only like 1 minute on each side maybe less. The goal is not to cook it in this step.
- Once all sides are browned, turn the heat off, dump the chopped onions in the pot with the roast and give them a good quick stir, then take your butter and put on the top of the the pot-roast.
- Put the lid on the pot and place in the oven and let it cook for about 35-40 minutes. Don’t forget to let it rest before you cut it!
Hope you’re enjoying fall!
