I grew up on a beef cattle farm so a meat and potatoes dinner is not only full of wonderful flavours but great memories too. There are many ways to prepare and season a beef roast, and I am very fond of the easy one pot meal.

-Beef Roast (ours was 1.5 lbs)
-Spices to taste (we use salt, pepper, garlic salt, and Montreal steak spice)
-Onion and garlic, chopped
-Assorted vegetables for side dishes (today we had potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots)

1. Place roast in 9x13 pan. Season with spices. Surround roast with chopped onion and garlic for flavour.
2. Chop other veggies (potatoes and carrots) and place in pan beside the roast.
3. Add about 1/2 inch of water to pan. Sprinkle with extra spices if desired.
4. Cook in 350°F oven for 1.5 - 2 hours (time will vary on size of roast).
5. Remove veggies and roast from pan and set aside.
6. Strain juices from pan into small pot for gravy.
7. Serve with dinner rolls and enjoy!

  1. Love it, love it, love it. So easy and fun. Love the fall cooking.

    I just played with pork butt ribs in two different stews and they were super tender.

    1. I love the fall cooking too, the food is so filling and I love the one pot meals. Just toss a bunch of goodness in a pot and a few hours later you have a wonderful meal. Love that.

    2. Very true. Super easy and it makes the house smell wonderful.

    3. That is one of my favourite parts of cooking. I love making the house smell great.

    4. I used to do the wax tarts but haven't got them in a while. I still have my wax melter, but haven't any wax. We got a whole bunch of scented candles and incense at Christmas last year, so we have been going through those. But now that you mention it, I should probably pick up a pumpkin spice wax tart... mmmmm....

    1. No I don't think they are in Canada, but I just looked them up and the closest thing we have to it is Michaels Craft Store.
