  • 1 tablespoon garlic infused early harvest extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 ½ pound beef rump roast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary


  1. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Pour the oil into a large oven-safe pot over medium-high heat. Season the roast with salt and pepper, then brown the meat on both sides. Transfer to a plate when all sides are nice and golden brown.
  3. Stir carrots, celery, and onion into the pot and cook until they have released their juices. This will take about 3 minutes. Add butter, then cook until onions are fully translucent. This will take about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in rosemary, stir altogether then return the roast to the pot. Cover with lid.
  4. Place pot in oven and roast until the roast is tender. This will take about 2 ½ – 3 hours. Season vegetables with additional spices if desired

Tips: This pot roast recipe is easy to prepare. Just combine everything into a pot and watch the vegetables break down as they combine with the sauce to create a delicious gravy. So warm, hearty, and best of all…delicious! Serve the roast over horseradish mashed potatoes for a delectable dinner treat.

Serve your roast with some delicious Canadian wild rice mixed in with white basmati rice or try it with some horseradish mashed potatoes!
