Oven-braised beef roast is one of my family’s favorite meals and one of the simplest to prepare. It makes for a delicious dinner that you’ll hope doesn’t all get eaten so you have left-overs to use in sandwiches, stews, and soups. It makes for a perfect Sunday dinner that tastes like you’ve been slaving away all day in the kitchen when really, your Dutch oven does all of the work for you.

I like to include a few vegetables with my oven-braised beef roast for an incredibly flavorful one pot dinner. Simple preparation, simple hearty meal, and simple cleanup! I don’t know about you, but I can’t ask for much more than that!

Here’s how I make my it.
