Mom's Oven Pot Roast with Gravy


My Mom made a country pot roast about every other week and it was one of our favorite family meals. I can still remember the aromas that met me at the front door when I came home from school. And her roasts was always so tender you could cut it with a fork. But we didn't use a fork...we used spoons so we never missed a drop of that thick rich gravy! 

Mom's Oven Pot Roast with Gravy
3- to 4-pound Chuck roast
flour for dredging
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 beef bouillon cube
1/2 cup hot water
1 onion sliced


3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cold water
1 cup sour cream, room temperature

Coat both sides of pot roast with flour. In a Dutch oven, melt butter and brown all sides of the roast. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Dissolve bouillon cube in hot water; pour over meat. Cover and place in a preheated 350 degree oven; cook 2 hours or until meat is fork tender. Remove meat and vegetables to a warm platter; keep warm while you make your gravy.

Pour drippings from pot roast into saucepan to make 1 1/3 cup. If it comes up short you can add a little beef broth. Blend together flour and water. Heat drippings to boiling; gradually stir in flour and water mixture and cook, stirring constantly until gravy is thickened. Cook 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat and slowly stir in sour cream. Heat through, but do not boil.
