When I think roast, I think of family Sunday dinners. Wearing my Sunday best, a linen table cloth, the “good dishes” on my momma’s table, and way too many conversations going on at once. But when I think of roast, I also think about how much time and effort it takes into making it taste good. So I set out to combine a traditional family recipe and a convenient recipe I found on The Pioneer Woman blog— the outcome is this Dutch Oven Roast.

  7. Add 2 tbsp whiskey (if desired) and 2 cups beef broth to the dutch oven to deglaze. Scrape the bottom if needed with a whisk.

  8. Return the roast to the dutch oven. Add more broth if needed to cover the bottom half of the roast. Return carrots and onions, add fresh thyme to the roast. Cover and place in hot oven for 3-4 hours, until internal temp of 145 degrees.
