Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8
  • 4 pounds beef chuck arm pot roast, boneless
  • 1 package onion soup mix
  • 2 medium potatoes; pared/cut in 6ths
  • 6 medium carrots; scraped, or more
  • 1/2 Cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bay leaf; crushed
  • 1/4 Cup flour; for gravy
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place an 18-inch x 30-inch piece of heavy-duty foil in center of a shallow baking pan.
  3. Sprinkle a little of the soup mix in center of foil. Place meat over mix. Arrange carrots and potatoes around meat. Pour wine over meat; sprinkle balance of soup mix and seasonings over meat and vegetables.
  4. Bring the two edges of foil together above the meat and fold down in 1-inch locked folds, but do not draw the foil too tightly. Fold ends over and over to make an airtight seal.
  5. Cook for 2 1/2 hours, or until done. Remove roast from oven and fold foil back. Transfer to a serving platter, arrange vegetables around roast, and keep warm.
  6. For 2 cups of gravy, pour liquid from pan into a 2-cup measuring cup. Let stand for 1 minute to allow fat to come to top. Discard all but 4 Tablespoons (or less) of fat. Add enough water (or other liquid) to measure 1 1/2 cups. Pour into medium- size saucepan.
  7. In same cup, measure 1/2 cup cold water and blend in flour. Add mixture slowly to liquid in pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook until thickened, about 3 minutes. Taste gravy and correct seasoning, if necessary, with salt and pepper.
  8. Slice meat and serve with vegetables. Serve gravy separately.
