Ingredients

2
tablespoons oil
1
(3 to 4-lb.) beef chuck arm, blade or 7- bone pot roast
1/2
teaspoon pepper
4
medium onions, quartered
4
stalks celery, cut into pieces
1
bay leaf
2
teaspoons beef-flavor instant bouillon or 2 beef-flavor bouillon cubes
1 1/2
cups boiling water
6
medium potatoes, halved
6
medium carrots, cut into pieces
1/4
cup cold water
3
tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. In 5-quart Dutch oven or roasting pan, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add beef roast; cook about 5 minutes on each side or until browned. If desired, drain off excess fat.
  • 2 Sprinkle pepper on both sides of beef. Add 1 of the onions, 1 of the stalks of celery and bay leaf to beef. Dissolve bouillon in boiling water; reserve 3/4 cup. Pour remaining 3/4 cup bouillon around beef. Bring to a boil. Cover.
  • 3 Bake at 325°F. for 1 hour. Add remaining vegetables; cover and bake an additional 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until beef and vegetables are tender.
  • 4 To prepare gravy, place beef and vegetables on warm platter; cover loosely to keep warm. Measure drippings from Dutch oven. If desired, skim off fat. Add reserved 3/4 cup bouillon to drippings to make 3 cups; return to Dutch oven.
  • 5 In small jar with tight-fitting lid, combine cold water and flour; shake well. Gradually stir flour mixture into drippings. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. If desired, add salt to taste. Serve gravy with beef and vegetables.
