2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

2 1/2 cups beef broth

Directions:
Directions:
1. Trim fat from chuck roast.

2. In a large pot (and I mean large, this pot has to hold all the ingredients!) heat olive oil. Sear the chuck roast, remove, and place on plate with a paper towel to soak up the oil. Rinse out the pot to take all oil out of the pot.

3. Mix beef broth, rosemary, paprika, garlic, and Italian seasoning together.

4. Place roast back into pot, pour spice and broth mixture over pot roast, and heat to boiling.

5. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.

6. Slice onion into wedges and slice potatoes into quarters.

7. After 1 hour, add onions, potatoes, and as many baby carrots as you like to the pot roast. Increase heat and bring to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer again, and let simmer for another 3 to 4 hours. Pot roast should be falling apart.

I originally got this recipe out of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, but I found it to be a little bland, so I altered it.
