Pot Roast with Gravy

I love it when my boys call me about my pot roast - keep calling! Anyway, this is pretty basic. Mom always had a round bone chuck roast but they are pretty hard to find.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 20 minutes


  • 3 lb chuck roast, rump roast or top round roast - the eye of the round is good too.
  • 1 large onion, cut up
  • 1 large bay leaf, or more if you so desire


  1. Brown roast in small amount of oil, adding chopped onion, turn a couple of times to brown it well.
  2. Add water to the pah, halfway up the thickness of the meat.
  3. Add bay leaf.
  4. Cover tightly and simmer until tender - a good couple of hours, I think.
  5. Check from time to time and add water if needed.
  6. By the time it's done cooking the water will be just about gone and the juices will remain.
  7. Remove roast from pan.
  8. Add about 1/4 cup of flour to the pan.
  9. Stir well and add water as needed to make the gravy.
