Hello folks and welcome back to the All Things Southern kitchen! I noticed something over the weekend. We have several roast beef recipes in the archives, but we don’t have my French Onion on the website. And that’s not good. My French Onion Pot Roast delivers a flavor packed meal with minimum fuss and ever belle needs it in her repertoire. Come on folks, let me show y’all how to put my French Onion Pot Roast on for supper.
“French Onion Pot Roast”
1/4 cup butter
2-3 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 soy sauce
1/2 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons cornstarch
4 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed celery seed
1/4 teaspoon sugar
2 onions sliced into rounds
3-4 lb. beef roast, rubbed down with black pepper and Cajun seasoning
5 cups water
We’ll begin by melting a fourth cup of butter in a cast iron skillet before adding in 1/2 cup each of soy sauce and beef broth. We’ll stir in a couple tablespoons of corn starch for thickening before seasoning it with 2-3 teaspoons of minced garlic, 4 teaspoons of onion powder, a teaspoon of curry powder and a 1/4 teaspoon each of celery seed and table sugar. We’ll let this come to a boil and turn it down on simmer.
Meanwhile, we’ll place a 3-4 pound roast in the bottom of our crockpot. We’ll rub our roast down with black pepper and Cajun seasoning. (Don’t skip that part. It’s very important!) Then we’ll slice up two white onions and layer them over the roast before pouring our brown sauce over the top. That’s it!
You can cook this in a Dutch Oven for 2 and 1/2 to 3 hours on 350 degrees if you’d like. I’m using the crock pot because I have a ton of things to do this afternoon.
We’ll cook it about six hours on low. And IF there are any leftovers, they’ll be fantastic the next day on French bread with onions and cheese– Po boys extraordinaire! YUM! You guessed it. I forgot to take a pic of the actual roast before it was totally consumed. That may speak to my blog skills– but it also speaks for My French Onion Pot Roast! It’s good eating, from the All Things Southern kitchen to yours~
