Roast Beast

The Easter holiday is just about here and while you’re getting the baskets filled and coloring hard boiled eggs, its time to think about what you’re going to make for dinner.Having a delicious roast turkey or honey baked ham is always nice, but I prefer something different.Growing up I have always loved a dish that my mom makes for special occasions; roast beef.We like to refer to is as roast beast from the story of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”I recently made a roast beast dinner for a few friends and myself.This is a simple meal to make and can be made in any kitchen regardless of size (like my tiny place).

Mom’s Roast Beast Dinner
Preheat oven to 325F

1 large chuck roast, bone-in

5 baker potatoes
2 cups baby carrots
1/2 cup vadalia onion, diced
2 galic cloves
Vegatable oil, enough to coat the bottom of your pan
Salt and Pepper to taste
Water

Place your cast iron pot or other dutch oven on the stove and sweat onions on medium high heat with the oil.Place the chuck roast on the hot pan and brown on both sides.Add minced garlic and season with salt and pepper.Fill pot with water to just cover the chuck roast and place in the oven, let cook for 3 hours.

After 3 hours, flip the meet and add baby carrots and quartered and peeled potatoes.Put back in the oven and cook for another hour.Next, take out the potatoes, carrots, and roast and set aside.Make a gravy with the remaining liquid by bringing it to a boil on the stove then adding a slurry of 3 tablespoons flour to about 1 1/2 cups milk.Continue stirring the mixture until the gravy thickens.Take off the heat, and eat!

Roast Beast is great to eat with some fresh biscuits and the company of good family and friends.Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
