Cooking with Beth: Fancy Yankee Pot Roast

By • Feb 25th, 2019 • Category: Billiard Tips, Uncategorized

An under 2 minute video is absolutely possible if you don’t chop crap up on film. Not sure if I like this style, but I am ramping up for a contest that has to be done under 3 minutes, so you’ll have to bear with me while I continue experimenting. No, Aaron, this can’t be shipped 😉

* 1/4 cup pure olive oil
* 3 onions, sliced
* One 3- to 4-pound top or bottom round beef roast
* Flour for dredging
* 8 slender carrots, or fatter ones cut in half or quartered
* 3 ribs celery, cut in half
* 2 1/2 cups beef broth
* 5 or 6 sprigs fresh thyme
* 1 rounded teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
* Salt to taste
* 2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
* 2 rounded tablespoons flour


In a large, heavy flameproof casserole, preferably cast iron, over medium heat, heat the olive oil and saute the onions until golden. Thoroughly dredge the beef in the flour, covering all the surfaces. Add to the pan and brown on all sides. The flour may cause the onions to burn slightly. This is good and will add lots of flavor. Add the carrots, celery, beef broth, thyme, black pepper, and salt to taste. Reduce heat, partially cover, and barely simmer for 3 to 3 1/2 hours, turning the beef occasionally. Remove the carrots and celery when they are cooked and reserve.

When the beef is falling-apart tender, remove it from the broth. Remove the thyme sprigs. Knead the butter and 2 tablespoons flour together until thoroughly combined. Add the mixture to the broth and stir with a wooden spoon until you have a sauce the consistency of buttermilk. Remove from the heat.

  1. im on cam and bored

    this video was good Ow

  2. I meant the length of the video. If you’ve been following me, you’ll find that I am trying to cut my video lengths down for an entry into a contest which allows only a three minute video…
    But thanks for the comment anyway. I guess.

  3. Pot roast, three minutes my ass…

  4. It looks wonderful, Beth. I love anything that is “fall-apart” tender! We will have to try this. – roc

  5. Wow looks yummy, love the Flameproof warning!!!

  6. If we ever do, I’d gain an extra 20 lbs. daily.

  7. i almost shorted out my keyboard from all the drooling…..damn, that looks/sounds tasty.

    good think we don’t have smello-vlog capabilities.

  8. Yey! It really does have a great flavor to it. It is definitely something I am gong to be doing again and again!

  9. It was delicious!

  10. No, actually it was two cuts of meat that I got packaged together at Costco. I would definitely have cooked this another hour or so, as part of the meat had gotten VERY soft and the other was…not so soft.

  11. Did you cut the meat in half?

  12. 3 and 1/2 hors didnt sound like enough to me either, but it sure looks good:)

  13. If only the cooking time could be as quick as this video. Especially when we are hungry lol.

  14. Hey there….we had roast today (sunday) at my mom’s. We did it the southern way though…(is there a southern way to cook roast? we did it mom’s way).
    cooked in a large electric skillet.
    olive oil in skillet to sear outside, then nearly cover with water (or beef broth – we use 1/2 each) season with garlic, salt, pepper, meat tenderizer. simmer, adding water when needed for bout 4-6 hours.
    Add carrots (1st)and potatos (30 min later), & onion.
    ENJOY!! Yummy!
    Thanks for sharing Beth!

  15. Hmmmmm I shouldn’t watch one of your cooking vids right when I’m getting ready for bed. Looks delicious. 🙂

  16. okay, I’m drooling on my keyboard 🙂

  17. very nice.

  18. Yep, not much you can do to ruin one! LOL

  19. Us too..we are just about due to make one. However, we do ours in the crock pot for hours on low. Any way you cook’s yum!

  20. I love pot roast! I’m way overdue for one! I have never cooked one on top the stove though. I do almost the same thing, but cook it in the oven!

  21. wow….this looks absolutly brill as always with ur cooking!love it,wish i could come for dinner…lol!hugs,annie xxx

  22. Wow. Looked good!

  23. Oh snap! And that is my regular opening! I wasn’t prepared and didn’t plan to actually do this recipe. Once I had already started it, I thought “hmm, see if you can get this video done in under 3 minutes.” If I’d remembered and done the butter/flour part, I still would have come out just over 2 minutes, so I think I can do it. But dammit! I should do a voice over 😉

  24. OK you didn’t say “hey kids” at the start of your video and now I’m really sad hehehe lol .. Much Love …Travis

  25. that was quick! looks yummy too 😉
