Pot Roast with Garlic

This is a recipe my mom always made for me as a child…now, I make it for my family! It is the perfect supper to have on cold winter days. If you like garlic as much as I do, you will love the way it is  added into the meat to carry out its delicious flavor. Serve with dinner rolls for dipping and a nice garden salad..it will be wonderful. 
Start out with a roasting meat of your choice.. you can use chuck, top/ bottom round, or rump.  I suggest purchasing 1 lb per 2 servings. I have a 3 lb roast in this photo
(keep an eye out at your grocery store these meats are often BOGO). 1 large can of beef broth, olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper. 
I use 1 head of garlic in my roast, but have 2 here to show you what it looks like when I prepare it. I peel the outside layers off like so…
And break the cloves apart and peel the outside layer of the cloves off…
Then cut into quarters
With a sharp knife cut slices into the meat (about an inch through)
Fill the holes in the meat with the quarters of garlic on all sides. 
Place olive oil in a large pan and heat to medium/high heat. Brown all sides of the roast and season with salt and pepper. This will only cook the meat 1/4 of an inch through, but it adds a delicious flavor! 
Place your roast into a Crock Pot (you can also do this on a stove in a large pot).  Season with worcestershire sauce. 
Pour 1 large can of beef broth over top 
Prepare your veggies..I have here potatoes cut in halves, onions cut in quarters and baby carrots. (I also really like cabbage, but my hubby doesn’t, so I spare him ..haha)
Simply place all your veggies on top of the meat, if the broth does not cover everything you may add water. 
Cover and cook on high for 6 hours in the Crock Pot. If you are cooking stovetop, place on a medium heat. 
When your roast is done the veggies will be tender and the roast will flake apart..Mmmm

  11. Thank you for this recipe! I made it last night and my husband LOVED it! He ate a generous second helping too. Thanks for making me look good Janelle! Ha ha.

  12. Could you also cook this on low for 10-12 hours in the crockpot? I leave pretty early in the morning and by the time we have dinner it would be almost 11 hours, not 6.

  1. […] Comfy in the Kitchen isn’t only a recipe website… Janelle is a wonderful Christian woman that often writes about her faith and other aspects of her life. Plus, all of the recipes are delicious and easy to try. (She often includes music on her posts so make sure your volume is turned down). Even with the music, her site is still a valuable resource for me. My husband loved the Pot Roast with Garlic! […]
