The Pot Roast that Turned into Beef Stew

The other day I had a great idea to use my dutch oven.  You see I have had the dutch oven for about two months now and haven’t even touched it.  It has been sitting in the kitchen as if it was a decoration and not something to actually cook with.  So I finally got the guts to use it and decided I would make a pot roast.

I have made many pot roasts before but always in a slow cooker.  I had never tried to make one before in a dutch oven.  So I added all of my ingredients and the roast.  It started to cook and the smell was amazing.  Now at this point K comes out of the bedroom and into the kitchen.  He is sniffing around.  You know what this mean…what ya cooking and when can I eat it?

The dutch oven did cook the roast much quicker then I thought it would, but not fast enough.  I chopped the potatoes and carrots and added them in.  Again K comes in and is sniffing around.  I too at this point was on the verge of hunger.  So instead of waiting till the roast was completely finished I decided to take it out.  I then proceeded to cut it into smaller pieces and toss it back into the pot so the whole dish would cook faster.  And it did.

The end dish had a great taste and we both ate two bowls full (Luckily our bowls aren’t too big or too deep).

And that is how The Pot Roast that Turned into Beef Stew…

  1. Man that stew looks good. Wish a restaurant made one like that in my home town. 🙂

    I rarely cook, and that stew reminds me of my mothers, she always made the most tastiest stew!

    Problem is, she never wrote down the recipe :))

  2. When you say you haven’t used your dutch oven, I know what you mean. sorry I should have put this in my other comment.

    I bought a electric frypan, big, deep, wonderful to cook with!

    I burned the hamburger (settings on low still burned the meat) and then I couldn’t WASH it because my apt has one of those little VEGGIE sinks instead of a full sink!

    The sink is so close to the fridge I was unable to wash it, and had to do it in my bathtub!

    It’s sitting up on top of my cupboards and I’ve never cooked with it since!

    I hope to move to a bigger place and I’ll make sure I have two double sinks (the fry pan is extra large in size) with loads of room to wash the thing! 🙂
