Pot Roast

This is our dinner tonight! So good! The smell of pot roast brings back memories of my mom making it. Sunday night was the only night we ever had pot roast and here I am,making it for my family (for the first time might I add) on a Sunday night. So happy!



  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 pounds boneless chuck roast
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Heat a heavy Dutch oven on top of the stove over medium high heat. Add oil, and sear meat in the center of the pan for 4 minutes. Turn meat over with tongs; sear all sides for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove meat from pan. Arrange onion, garlic, and 1 bay leaf in the bottom of the pan, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Return meat to pan, place remaining bay leaf on top of meat, and cover.
Cook in the oven for 30 minutes at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Reduce the heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Remove roast to a platter to rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Slice, and top with onions and gravy.
7-UP Biscuits
2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7-up
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 450.
Cut sour cream into biscuit mix, add 7-Up. Makes a very soft dough.
Sprinkle additional biscuit mix on board or table and pat dough out. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch square pan.  Place cut biscuits in pan and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown
