An oven roasted pot roast is a common Sunday meal, but, I have always been kind of intimidated by it to be honest. So, my friends a Long Run Ranch have helped me out here with this Long Run Ranch Perfect Sunday Pot Roast recipe!
New Year, new category of recipes on the blog! Say hello to Long Run Ranch Perfect Sunday Pot roast... and the start of Sunday Dinner category!
It only seems fitting that the first recipe in a Sunday dinner category be a pot roast!
I called in the experts for this one. I try buy most of my meat directly from local ranches. Yay to living in Alberta!
A lot of my beef comes from Long Run Ranch in Crossfield, Alberta. So, I reached out to Amy, ranch wife extraordinaire, to share her perfect pot roast recipe.
She also gifted me a couple of cross rib roasts so I can practice my oven roasted roasts!
This recipe calls for searing each side of the roast before popping it into the oven for a very hands free Sunday Dinner.
Why would I start a Sunday dinner category on the blog?
Well, Sundays are my planning and prep day, so I need to start dinner, and it be hands off while I plan and do my prep for the week.
Also, it's a nice way to change things up because on Sunday's it is usually my husband, Brad (aka BT), that does the cooking, and his low and slow recipes are actually totally, 100% bloggable.
So now, you can look forward to seeing more of his low and slow, hearty Sunday creations here very soon!
