Linda's Own Midwestern Pot Roast

Linda's Own Midwestern Pot Roast

Once you cook pot roast in this manner, you will always want to make it this way. It's fall-apart tender. The secret to good pot roast is coating it with flour and browning it well before baking.



  1. Mix garlic powder, seasoned salt and pepper with flour. Cover all sides of the roast with the flour mixture.
  2. Brown roast in oil over medium-high heat in a large, heavy Dutch oven, making sure the oil is hot when you place the roast into the oil.
  3. Pour the bouillon water around meat; arrange vegetables around and on top of meat.
  4. Cover tightly; bake at 325 degrees F for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. The meat should tear easily with a fork.
  5. Remove meat to a serving platter.
  6. Serve with the gravy made during roasting. If desired, thicken gravy with a little flour and water mixed together.
