  • Total Time: 3 hours 15 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


  • 34 pound beef pot roast, preferably shoulder roast
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 23 tablespoons of minced garlic
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 pound of golden potatoes
  • 1 pound of whole carrots, trimmed and peeled


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • Place half of the sliced onions on the bottom of an oven-safe pot
  • Trim the extra fat off the outside of the roast
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper all over the roast, then cover the roast with minced garlic
  • Place the roast on top of the onions
  • Cover the roast with the rest of the onions
  • Pour the beef broth into the pan and cover it with a top
  • Place in the oven for 1 hour at 325 degrees
  • After 1 hour of baking, add the carrots and potatoes to the roast.
  • Continue baking for 2 more hours if using a 3-pound roast, or 3 more hours if using a 4-pound roast
  • Serve with roasted carrots and potatoes and homemade gravy made from roast juices.


  • For extra flavor, sear the meat before cooking it in the Dutch oven. This will lock in the juices and give your pot roast a beautiful caramelized crust.
  • Don’t skimp on pot roast seasoning! Be generous with salt and pepper, and don’t forget to add some herbs or spices for extra flavor.
  • Let the meat rest before slicing it. This allows the juices to redistribute and keep the meat tender.
  • If you want to add some extra richness, you can stir in a tablespoon of butter or sour cream right before serving. This will give your pot roast a creamy and velvety texture.
  • Leftovers make great sandwiches or can be used in other recipes like Shepherd’s Pie or Pot Roast Hash. Don’t let any of that deliciousness go to waste!
