Simple Beef Pot Roast

Original recipe adapted from: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/219173/simple-beef-pot-roast/


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 ½ pounds beef chuck pot roast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary


  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large oven-safe pot over medium-high heat. Season chuck roast with salt and black pepper, then cook in hot oil until brown on both sides; transfer to a plate.
  3. Add carrots, celery, and onion into the pot. Cook and stir until vegetables start to release their juices, scraping any brown flavor bits off the bottom of the pot, for about 3 minutes. Add butter, and cook until onions are translucent about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in rosemary; return roast to the pot and cover.
  4. Roast in the preheated oven until the chuck roast is tender, about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Season vegetables with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
