3 to 4 pounds beef pot roast
1/2 teaspoon onion seasoning
2 teaspoons salt
dash spiced salt
dash of pepper


Melt fat in a heavy Dutch oven or deep heavy skillet. Brown on all sides over moderate heat, then combine seasonings, add to meat with 1/2 cup of water. Cover the pan and cook over low heat for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until done, adding a little moisture from time to time as needed. vegetables may be added about 45 minutes before the end of the cooking period.

To Make Gravy-Remove meat and vegetables to a hot platter and keep warm. Pour off all but about 1/4 cup of fat in the pan, add water to make 2 1/2 cups. Combine 1/4 cup of flour with cold water to make a smooth paste, add to the water and fat and cook and stir until the resulting gravy is smooth and thickened. Add more seasoning, if necessary, and serve at once.

Makes 4 to 6 servings


  1. Add mustard, celery salt or garlic seasoning after the roast is browned.
