Dutch Oven – Dad’s Roast


Growing up, the Sunday roast was a good tradition in our family. No, we didn’t highlight someone’s faults in the name of humor, well, not always! I’m talking about meat and potatoes. Our weekly roast was similar to the Sunday roast I posted earlier. My father in law makes this roast camping. It’s really easy, and it tastes pretty good too.


12″ Dutch oven
350 Degrees
60 minutes
8 Servings

Beef Roast
Potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 pouch Au Jus mix
Season Salt

Cornstarch mixed in Water
1 pouch brown gravy mix

Rub roast with season salt. Sear roast on all sides in a hot Dutch oven. Add vegetables, Au Jus and about 1″ – 2″ water. Cover and bake at 350 degrees until done, approximately 60 minutes

3 Stars*

*Would likely have gotten a higher rating had we not used a chuck roast. Garbage in, garbage out, as they say. It tasted good, it was just very fatty.
