Whats For Dinner Next Week:Fall Pot Roast

Hi, I am so glad to see you, I came out in the garden early this morning to check out our newly planted fall greens. I was very happy to see that everything we planted is up. We are finally having cooler weather here which will put us in a mood for fall cooking. This week our grocery store had chuck roast on sale so I thought a Fall Pot Roast sounded good. I remember when I was a young girl on Sunday when we would come home from church when we walked in the door the aroma of the Sunday Pot Roast greeted us. This week my Feature Recipe will be the Fall Pot Roast.  
The original Pot Roast recipe is in my cook book  Miz Helen's Kitchen Table, I created this recipe just for fall, I hope you enjoy it and make a memory for your family.

    Your chili cook-off sounds like fun. We used to live in Texas, too -- eight years. The chili is the best, and I do my best to replicate it. I will enter your cook-off for sure!

  15. I've got this pot roast in the slow cooker right now! I have seared roast in the past prior to cooking, but only with dry seasonings; haven't used flour before. Any tips on this? The flour/seasoning rub mix stuck to the pot so maybe I had the fire too high?

  16. Miz Laurie,
    If you are searing meat with no flour your skillet needs to be really hot with little or no oil. If you are searing meat with flour your heat needs to be lower and you need more oil. That will keep it from sticking to your skillet.
    Thanks for your question.

  17. That's precisely what I did wrong with the roast. I'm used to searing it in a really hot skillet. Now I know better for searing with flour! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this incredible recipe. It was flavorful, tender and my house smelled aromatic all day long! You are too kind :-).
