Sunday Oven Pot Roast

2-1/2- to 3-lb. boneless beef chuck pot roast
Salt and ground black pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 14-oz. can beef broth
1 large onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, cut into 2-inch lengths
5 cups cups assorted vegetables such as peeled Yukon gold or sweet potatoes, cut into 2-inch chunks; parsnips, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks; whole shallots or garlic bulbs, halved horizontally; medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces.
1/4 cup cold water
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Trim fat from meat. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. In a roasting pan or large Dutch oven brown roast on all sides in hot oil over medium heat. Carefully drain fat from pan; discard. Add beef broth, onion, and celery to pan.

Roast, covered, for 1-1/4 hours. Remove celery with slotted spoon; discard. Add desired vegetables around roast. Roast, uncovered, for 50 to 60 minutes more or until meat and vegetables are tender, spooning juices twice during roasting.

Using a slotted spoon, remove meat and vegetables to platter. For gravy, measure pan juices; skim off any fat. Discard enough pan juice or add enough water to equal 1-1/2 cups.

In a saucepan whisk together the cold water and flour until well combined; add the 1-1/2 cups pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper. Pass gravy with meat and vegetables. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
