  • 3 lb cross rib roast
  • 2 TBSP kosher salt
  • 2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions quartered
  • 4 large carrots chopped into one inch pieces
  • 4 medium potatoes chopped into 2 inch pieces
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 fresh sprig rosemary
  • 1 fresh sprig thyme


  • Preheat oven to 300F
  • Season the roast with salt and pepper 
  • Heat oil over medium heat in an oven safe pot. A cast iron dutch oven is best!
  • Saute the onion for 1 minute and remove and set aside.
  • Add the roast to the pot and sear on each side. Approx 1 minute per side. 
  • Remove roast and add 1/2 broth to deglaze the pot. 
  • Place the roast back into the pot and add in the remaining broth. The broth will be about half way up the roast. 
  • Arrange the carrots, potatoes, and onions around the roast.
  • Add the fresh herbs, and put the lid on your pot. 
  • Roast in the oven for 2-3 hours to your desired level of doneness.
