Directions:
In cast iron skillet, heat bacon grease. Generously salt and pepper roast and coat with flour. Braise (sear) roast on all sides in hot skillet. Then remove & put in a large roasting pan. Slice potatoes into thirds (leave smaller potatoes whole or halved). Arrange in a ring around roast. Cut carrots into thirds & add in among potatoes. Cut onions into fourths and lay on top of roast. Put water in skillet and scrape it. Pour this on top of roast and add more water until it covers up potatoes. Roasting pan should be about 1/2 full of water. Put a lid or foil on top and cook at 350 while you are at church (2 to 2 1/2 hours). When you come home from church, change clothes and make the gravy. For gravy, pour roast juice into a saucepan and heat on medium hot. Put a little flour and some hot roast juice in a little glass jar with a tight lid. Shake until mixed. Pour this paste into hot juice to thicken gravy. Serve with roast.
