Apple Cider Pot Roast

Slowly cooked in apple cider and rich beef stock with fresh herbs and warm spices, this pot roast puts a fall spin on a classic dish.


Dust generously with salt and pepper. Sprinkle flour over the chuck roast and pat to coat. The flour helps the roast develop a nice crust.


Add the remaining ingredients and bring the liquid to a boil. Turn off heat and braise in the oven until fall-apart tender. You can also find slow cooker and Instant Pot instructions.


To make gravy, strain the braising liquid. Melt butter, whisk in flour and briefly cook. Slowly whisk in braising liquid, bring to a boil and cook until thickened.

For one cozy fall dinner, I hope you try this apple cider pot roast. It's comfort food at its finest!

Wow, this was delicious, and I would've never thought to use apple cider in a pot roast ... let me tell you, one of the best dinners we've had in a while!
