Sunday Oven Pot Roast



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Trim fat from meat. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven brown roast on all sides in hot oil over medium heat. Carefully drain fat from pan; discard. Add beef broth, onion, and celery to pan.
  2. Roast, covered, for 1-1/4 hours. Remove celery with slotted spoon; discard. Add desired vegetables around roast. Roast, uncovered, for 50 to 60 minutes more or until meat and vegetables are tender, spooning juices twice during roasting.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove meat and vegetables to a serving platter. For gravy, measure pan juices; skim off any fat. Discard enough pan juice or add enough water to equal 1-1/2 cups. In a medium saucepan whisk together the cold water and the flour until well combined; add the 1-1/2 cups pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper. Pass gravy with meat and vegetables.
