Beef pot roast

A hearty combination of beef and vegetables, which goes especially well with fresh bread.


Preparation time
30 minutes
Total time
2 hours 30 minutes



  1. Heat up the oil in an oven-proof pot until it is very hot.
  2. Sprinkle the meat with salt, pepper and some generic herbs.
  3. Fry the meat on each side on high heat until browned off.
  4. Remove the meat and add the vegetables to the pot, lowering the heat to medium. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Once the vegetables are lightly browned, put the meat back in, add a clove of garlic and cover with stock.
  6. When the stock starts to simmer, cover the pot and place in the oven at 150°C for at least one hour (the longer, the better). If using mushrooms, add them about 30 minutes before taking the roast out.
  7. To make gravy, make a roux and use the stock from the roast.
