Feeding the family on weeknights should be easy. This one-pot pot roast recipe is the perfect way to do just that. And while the humans are enjoying the pot roast, I’m serving my dog The Nutro™ Company as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars. #HonestToDog
Sometimes the hardest part about dinner for me is coming up with a great rotation of meals that my family loves. Mixing old favorites with new recipes is always a challenge. Especially with my more
picky choosy eaters. You know… my husband. I kid. But creating new recipes like this easy one-pot pot roast – even if they’re a spin off of an old favorite – keeps me happy because I’m not serving the same old thing (buttered noodles anyone?) and the family is well fed.
However, the easiest family member to please by far in this house is our dog, Scout. With his old age, I’ve started to see him lose the excitement he once had for his daily meals. So as I spruced up our own dinner menu, I also decided to spruce up his as well. With NUTRO™ Rotations™ I can add variety to his diet without worrying about his stomach. If we’re having Chicken and Rice, so can he. And if he’s enjoying Lamb and Potatoes, we’ll enjoy this delicious pot roast with potatoes. Confession: I’ve only had lamb in a gyro. Maybe I should try a lamb dish next week!
And I knew he’d be interested in the change when I came home to find that he had helped himself to one of the bags of NUTRO™ Rotations™ in the pantry. Yes, he’s a pretty smart dog and was able to open the pantry door to feed himself. Guess he loved the Salmon and Barley. I love Salmon too so I don’t blame him.
What I love about dinnertime is that it’s the one time of the day that the whole family is around the table – including Scout. While we can talk about our day and go over what was our favorite part, and our not so favorite part, he can eat along side us or lay down and take a rest while enjoying our company.
And as I try and feed my family the most natural food I can, I’m at ease in knowing that Scout’s getting that same quality food in his natural dog food. Real Meat, poultry or fish is the first ingredient followed along with whole grains and the finest fruits and vegetables. What I’m putting on the table for my husband and kids is what he’ll be enjoying in his dog dish.
Easy One-Pot Pot Roast
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 cloves garlic, whole
- 1/2 onion, sliced
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 2lb beef pot roast
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 4 carrots, peeled and cut into 1″ pieces
- 1 potato, peeled and cut into 1″ pieces
Heat olive oil in a dutch oven on the stove. Add garlic cloves, onions, and rosemary. Cook until onions are transparent.
Remove onions, garlic, and rosemary from the pot and set aside. Add butter and let melt. Season both sides of roast in salt and pepper and sear on each side in dutch oven, about 3 minutes or until browned.
Remove roast and add carrots and potatoes into the dutch oven. Cook until slightly browned. Then nestle pot roast in carrots and potatoes and top roast with onions, garlic and rosemary.
Cook in oven until roast is done, about 30 minutes. Let meat rest for about 5-10 minutes and enjoy!
How do you share the dinner table with your pooch?
