I have an amazing recipe I want to share with you today! Last year for Christmas, my hubby got me a dutch oven and I finally got around to making a huge pot of Beef Pot Roast. I normally make it in the crock pot, but I wanted to try my hand at making it in my Dutch Oven.
This beef pot roast was SO yummy! I loved how easy it was to fix. Everything goes right into the pot and right into the oven for about 2 and 1/2 hours and from there, you get the most delicious and tender beef roast ever. Earlier in the day when I was putting it in the pot, I snapped a quick pick of what it looked like.
I love having my fresh herbs right outside to cook with. They make everything smell that much more amazing!
- 1 whole 4 To 5 Pounds Chuck Roast
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 2 whole Onions
- 6 whole Carrots Up To 8 Carrots
- 4 potatoes cut into chunks
- Salt To Taste
- Pepper To Taste
- 1 cup beef broth
- 2 cups To 3 Cups Beef Stock
- 3 sprigs Fresh Thyme or more to taste
- 3 sprigs Fresh Rosemary or more to taste
Choose a chuck roast that has a lot of marbeling in it and then season it with a good amount of salt and pepper.
Heat your Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Then add 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
Cut two onions in half and set aside.
Peel 6 to 8 carrots and then cut into chunks and then into 2-inch slices
When the oil in the pot is very hot, add in the halved onions, browning them on one side and then the other. Remove the onions to a plate.
Throw the carrots into the same very hot pan and toss them around a bit until slightly browned, about a minute or so.
Remove the carrots to the same plate as the onions and then add in your potatoes and brown them a bit as well. Remove to the plate with the onions and carrots.
If needed, add a bit more olive oil to the very hot pan. Place the meat in the pan and sear it for about a minute on all sides until it is nice and brown all over. Remove the roast to a plate.
With the burner still on high, use beef broth (about 1 cup) to deglaze the pan, scraping the bottom with a whisk to get all of the brown bits and flavor up.
When the bottom of the pan is sufficiently deglazed, place the roast back into the pan and add enough beef stock to cover the meat halfway (about 2 to 3 cups).
Add in the onion, potatoes, and the carrots, as well as 3 or 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary and about 3 sprigs of fresh thyme.
Put the lid on, then roast in a 275F oven for 3 hours (for a 3-pound roast). For a 4 to 5-pound roast, plan on 4 hours.
While we were enjoying our delicious dinner, Tucker was enjoying his new Nutrish Zero Grain Dog food with Beef, Potato and Bison.
Now, normally he does not dig right in when we get a new dog food in, but the minute that Kayla put this in his bowl so that we could snap a few photos of him with the bag, he could not stop eating it.
Tucker loves it!! Thanks @nutrish #dogs #nutrish #dogsofinstagram A video posted by Jennifer Sikora (@jennifersikora) on

I have had the privilege of being on the blogging team for Rachael Ray Nutrish for about 3 years now. I don’t use this dog or cat food because I get paid to say it’s great, we use it for our fur babies because I love what Nutrish stands for, and I love that Rachael loves my babies as much as I do.
In fact, we took in a stray cat recently that we have been feeding Nutrish. When we first met this cat, his hair was falling out, he was SO skinny, but boy was he loving!
Now, look at how beautiful he looks — and he is healthy and happy. I think it has a lot to do with Nutrish.
Rachael cares about what our pets eat, so she creates a yummy food for them that is full of real flavors and real food — and the best part? When I buy her pet food, Rachael’s personal proceeds go to Rachael’s Rescue, a charity created to help shelter pets in need.
To date, they have donated over $9M. This money has gone toward food, medical supplies and treatments for these unfortunate animals.
Unlike their competitors, Nutrish prides themselves on bringing pet specialty quality food to the masses.
