  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour (2 for $5 Pillsbury All Purpose Flour, this week at Fresh)
  • 1 c water
  • 1 c buttermilk
  • 4 tsp instant beef soup bouillon (or use 1 cup good beef stock instead of water and bouillon)
  • 1/2 tsp crushed thyme leaves
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium onions, cut into wedges
  • 3 c frozen broccoli florets, thawed (1 crown of fresh broccoli) ($1.49/lb. for Broccoli Crowns, this week at Fresh)

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In a large skillet, brown roast in oil. Place in 3-quart roasting or baking pan. (I use a baking pan and wrap roast tight in foil) Add flour to drippings; cook and stir until browned. Add buttermilk, water, bouillon, thyme and pepper. Cook and stir until bouillon dissolves and mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.
  3. Place onions around meat; spoon sauce over meat. Cover; bake 2 hours.
  4. Add carrots and continue to bake for 2-3 hours more or until roast is tender. Add remaining vegetables; bake 15-20 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender.
