This is one of those recipes that a slow cooker comes in super handy - but it is not necessary by all means - but a crock pot, or a deep and large soup pot with lid will easily suffice.

Best Pot Roast Recipe:


  • beef rump roast, about 4 pounds
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons salad oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 8 whole black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) beef broth, undiluted
  • 12 small white onions
  • 6 to 8 carrots, peeled & halved lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon chopped parsley
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  1. In a 5-quart Dutch oven or large heavy kettle over medium heat, brown the rump roast with sliced onions, turning, until browned on all sides using olive oil and a little butter.
  2. Add garlic, thyme, marjoram, bay leaf, black peppercorns and and salt; cook, stirring, for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add beef broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer; cover and cook for about 2 1/2 hours. Add onions, carrots, and parsley; reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes or until vegetables and meat are tender.
  4. To make gravy: Transfer meat and vegetables from Dutch oven to warm serving platter. Keep warm, covered loosely with foil. Into 2-cup measure, strain liquid remaining in Dutch oven. If necessary, add water to measure 2 cups. Return the hot liquid to Dutch oven.
  5. Combine flour with 1/4 cup of cold water; stir until smooth. Stir flour mixture into liquid in Dutch oven and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer for another 3 minutes. Taste and add salt if desired. Serve with potatoes.
