Recipe Classic ~ Pot Roast


There are a few classic recipes that we make more often than anything I share here on the blog so I thought it would be fun to change that! The first recipe classic I wanted to blog about is the pot roast recipe we make about once a month during the cold winter months. Pot Roast can be made a number of ways but years ago we tried this Tyler Florence Pot Roast recipe and we thought it was just delish. Then our Z came along and let me tell you, there is no meal this toddler likes more – she hums in delight as she eats, especially the carrots. That’s right – a toddler enjoying carrots!I thought it was a good time to share this short and simple recipe while the temp is still bitter cold outside. This is a great meal to make on a snow day since it takes 3 hours to simmer and I am sorry to say, in the Northeast I am sure we have at least one doozy of a storm left this winter!

Add a can of tomatoes, a cup of water and your veggies – we stick with onions (we like these) and carrots (Z loves them, as mentioned above).


Toss in your herbs and let summer, covered for 3 hours. We serve with egg noodles on the side. Enjoy!
