Pot Roast and Golden Brown Potatoes

SUBMITTED BY: Susan Arcement
INGREDIENTS:

Cooking oil
Beef roast of your choice and size
Onion
Potatoes
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne to taste

DIRECTIONS:

This is very simple to prepare. Put just enough cooking oil in your cast iron pot to cover the bottom. Season your roast with salt and pepper, a little garlic powder and cayenne. Be careful with the cayenne! A little goes a long way!

Add roast to pot. Add a chopped onion. Cover and put in a 350 degree oven.

After about 30-40 minutes, stir onions, turn over roast and add a little water--1/2 cup to 1 cup. Check on roast every 30-45 minutes, adding water as needed until roast is almost tender. Depending on type of roast and size, this might take 3-4 hours. The onions and juices will make a small gravy.

Peel and cut potatoes in chunks. Salt and pepper to taste. Add to the pot and bake 20-30 minutes longer until potatoes are cooked.

Serve over hot rice.
