Challenge 11: Pot Roast

Confession: I made this probably 2 months ago. And I am just now posting it. Go ahead, yell and pump those virtual fists at me. I deserve it.

This pot roast claims to be perfect. I was pretty skeptical going in to it, but it proved me wrong. It was perfect.

But it's also dangerous.

Browning these onions in scorching hot oil is just asking for trouble. Hot oil and onions were popping and flying all over my kitchen!!

But she said to do it, so I did it. And then I did the same thing to the carrots.

Not as dangerous.

Delish.

Real whole carrots are 10 X's better than baby.

I then seared the roast before cooking it completely and I have to tell you, I've never done this before. It seems pointless, but PW said to, so I did.

And I'm glad I listened. It's NOT pointless.

I love the unique herbs she throws in the pot roast. Makes for a flavor explosion!

Simmer, baby. Simmer down.

Into the oven she goes and she came out....

Of course it was perfect!

I wanted to cook something ! found online for our Mother's Day supper. My husband said "shouldn't we stick with Pioneer Woman? We know her recipes always turn out."
