Pot Roast

I have always loved a good pot roast. I bought a rump roast that was on sale and could not think of a way to cook it without having a tough roast. I finally decided to cook it in the oven and was pleasantly surprised to find it fork tender. Everyone just loved it and the leftovers were so good served over some homemade bread. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


4-5 pound rump roast
2 sticks of butter
1 white onion-cut into rings
1 pound button mushrooms
2 pounds carrots
Salt and Pepper to taste
4 garlic cloves-minced
Enough water to almost cover roast

Melt butter in a roasting pan and season roast with salt and pepper. Brown roast on all sides. Now add your garlic, onions, and mushrooms and enough water to almost cover roast. Place a lid on the pan and cook at 325' for at least 4 hours. I cooked mine about 7 hours. The last hour of cooking add your carrots. I added a slurry to the broth that was in the pan and made a really good gravy.
