Dutch oven fail safe beef roast recipe


Beef roast

Broth (I use my home made beef broth, but I have used mushroom or vegetable)

2 Bay leaves

3 -5 cloves Garlic

1 Onion

Seasoning (I like Herbamare or just garlic powder, salt and pepper)

Rendered lard, coconut oil, avacado oil, bacon fat


Pre heat oven to 350

Heat oil in the dutch oven on medium high. (I have this dutch oven Costco Dutch oven but I wish I had this one Dream one )I use about 4 tbs bacon fat or coconut oill.

Season the beef which has been brought to room temperature by taking it out of the fridge for 15 minutes to an hour. (not totally important but helpful)

Brown the meat 4 minutes per side

Turn the heat off, add the onion, bay leaves, garlic and broth. The broth should just cover the meat, there can be some meat sticking out of the top of the broth, but not a lot.

Cover the pot and put it in the oven for 3 hours. For smaller cuts like beef shank, you can roast it for 2 hours then shut the oven off and let it sit in there until you are ready to eat or an hour.
