Pot Roast with Sweet Potato, Mushroom, and Carrot

This is a sponsored post.

Welcome to week 7 of our fall family dinner series brought to you by Brewers Organics!

Ā Cooler fall temps make me love a classic comfort food like pot roast or beef stew. We make beef stew quite a bit in our house. It is kid friendly, easy, and healthy all at the same time šŸ™‚

Pot Roast with Sweet Potato, Mushroom, and Carrot

This fall classic is the epitome of comfort food when the weather becomes crisp and cool. This versionĀ takes vegetables from the harvest season-sweet potato, carrot, and mushroom- which all complementĀ the heartiness of the roast. When cooked to perfection, the roast can be cut with a fork! This roast isĀ truly melt-in- your mouth, and there will be no empty tummies at the dinner table.

Serves 6 generously

Brewers Organics Lake Country Family Fun Beef Stew


3 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch slices
1 large sweet potato, cut into large cubes
1 package mushrooms, white button or baby bellas cut into slices
1 yellow onion, quartered
3-4 lb. chuck roast
Ā½ cup red wine
1 package McCormick ā€œBag ā€˜N Season Pot Roastā€


Preheat oven to 350Ā° F.
Fill a large Dutch Oven with the carrots, sweet potato, mushrooms and onion. Lay the chuck roast onĀ top of the vegetables.
In a small bowl, mix together the red wine and the seasoning packet from the McCormick ā€œBag ā€˜NĀ Season Pot Roast.ā€

Hint #1: The seasoning packet will call for use of Ā¼ cup water, but use Ā½ cup red wine for a fuller, richer,Ā and more complex flavor!

Hint #2: Thereā€™s no need to use the bag that comes with the McCormick ā€œBag ā€˜N Season Pot Roastā€Ā package.
Cook everything right in your large Dutch Oven or even a slow cooker.
Cover with lid and roast at 350Ā° F for 3 hours.
Check tenderness of the roast with a fork, as it should beĀ fork tender (no need for a knife to slice!).
If the roast is not fork tender, raise oven heat to 425Ā° F andĀ roast for another 30-45 minutes.
The final product should fall apart when pierced with a forkā€¦delicious šŸ™‚

Serve hot immediately.

Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 4 days, so enjoy as leftovers for lunchĀ and dinner throughout the week.

Hint #3: To stretch leftovers, serve over rice, spƤtzle, or egg noodles.
