Beef Recipe : Succulent Beef Pot Roast with Green Salsa Verde

Pot roast is definitely one of my most favorite meat dishes to prepare as well as to eat. At Harris Teeter supermarket, you can purchase a tray of raw meat pot roast at varying prices depending on sales prices versus regular retail price as well as the weight of the meat. You can expect to pay an average of anywhere from $13-$18 for a large cut of raw pot roast from Harris Teeter supermarket. I have also purchased comparable pot roast at Food Lion supermarket on occasion.

To prepare this beef recipe for succulent beef pot roast with green salsa verde, take a large baking pan and line it with foil, then coat the foil with cooking oil such as canola oil or vegetable oil. Set the baking pan aside.

The raw beef pot roast that you purchased should be removed from all packaging and rinsed well, patted dry with paper towels and then placed in the foil lined baking tray. Then you can discard all the packaging and paper towels that you used, wash and dry your hands and select jars of spices that you will use to season the beef pot roast. The spices that I most recommend for seasoning the pot roast are black pepper, salt, garlic powder, a bit of crushed red pepper and perhaps a little parsley or oregano. You can rub the seasonings into the pot roast, then wash hands again. Pour just about two ounces of water into the baking pan.

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Then add the baking pan containing the pot roast to the oven. Bake the beef pot roast at the 400 degree temperature for fifteen minutes then reduce the heat of the oven to 350 degrees, cover the beef pot roast with foil and continue cooking it in the oven for an additional 1 hour. Finally, reduce the heat one the oven again, this time to 325 degrees and cook the beef pot roast for 1 more hour at that temperature.

This cooking process should yield a very juicy, succulent beef pot roast, not at all dried out.

When it comes to meat and sauce pairings, green salsa verde is very complimentary to beef pot roast and is perhaps my favorite type of sauce to eat with beef pot roast. Green salsa verde is commonly used in Mexican cuisine and my first introduction to it was from a Mexican restaurant. It is a spicy green sauce made from tomatillos (Mexican green tomatoes). I do not prepare the green salsa verde from scratch. I buy it at the supermarket already prepared and enjoy adding it to my piping hot beef pot roast meat before I dig in. Some illustrative photos are included in this article to show the beef pot roast with the green salsa verde. It is oh so good!

If you prepare this succulent beef pot roast with green salsa verde recipe, may you enjoy it immensely!
