Sunday Roast

When I was a child we would come home from church and the first thing we would smell would be the Sunday Roast. Sometimes the roast would be a pot roast and sometimes it would take on other names, but mainly it was the Sunday Roast. In all those years this was my favorite of all the roast that we would have on Sunday, then we would have sandwiches or hash from the leftovers that night for dinner or the next day for lunch. I still love the Sunday Roast and hope you will enjoy it as well.

This roast is just full of flavor and has a
 wonderful gravy that completes this tender roast.

Sunday Roast
Miz Helen's Kitchen
2 1/2 to 3 pound chuck roast
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons flour
1 onion, sliced
2 cups beef consume
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
Mix the flour with the garlic powder. Salt and pepper the roast on both sides.
Dust the roast on both sides with the flour and garlic mix.
Pour the olive oil into a hot dutch oven and sear the roast on both sides.
Mix the beef consume, Worcestershire, and vinegar together.
Lay the sliced onion on top of the roast, then pour the liquid mix over the roast.
Place the fresh thyme sprigs on top of the onions.
Cover the pan and roast at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove the pan from the oven and let rest with the lid on for 15 minutes.
Remove the meat to a cutting board.
Use the liquid gravy over the meat. If you wish to thicken the gravy use 3 tablespoons corn starch with 1/2 cup water and add it to the hot gravy. Stir until thick.

  3. I love a Sunday Roast too Miz Helen. We did that for awhile growing up, but some were tired of always having roast, so the kids got to take turns picking and cooking the Sunday meal.
    Your gravy looks mouthwatering on this roast. Thanks for sharing with Weekend Bites.

  12. My family prefers roast and I usually try a different roast recipe each time I make it to keep it interesting. I am adding this recipe to my collection of roast recipes to try. I heard that chuck roast is the best cut to use for roasts, but I usually use the rump cut.
