Pot Roast

I am a huge fan of Disney World for many reasons, one being the food of course.  One of the restaurant, The Liberty Tree Tavern, has some of the most tender, juicy, flavorful pot roast you will ever eat.  I sought out to create a recipe that tasted just like it and here it is!

1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 pounds boneless beef shoulder roast
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
2 cups large diced carrots
2 cups large diced celery
2 cups large diced onion
1/4 cup chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup Burgundy wine
6 cups beef broth

Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat 1/4 cup oil in heavy pan and brown the meat on all sides. Make sure this pan can also go in the oven and is deep enough for a lot of liquid.  A dutch oven works best.
Remove the meat and add butter. After butter has melted, add carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and fresh thyme. Sauté until vegetables are tender. Stir in the flour, and continue cooking until everything is brown
Stir in Burgundy wine and beef broth. Add the meat back into the pan. Cover and bake for 40 minutes to 1 hour, or until meat is fork tender.

Here I have served my pot roast with mashed potatoes.  Enjoy!
