Savory Pot Roast

Do you ever just need comfort food?  My usual comfort food is a big bowl of macaroni and cheese but for tonight I did a roast with noodles and cabbage.  Even though it isn't my normal comfort food, pot roast has a heartiness to it, that for me makes it comfort food.

I would really love to know what is your favorite go to comfort food.  Please feel free to share this with me by commenting at the bottom of this post.  I would love to hear from you!

Savory Pot Roast
This recipe comes from an A1 booklet I picked up years ago.  The cooked pot roast reminds me slightly of sauerbraten (which is marinated for several days and then cooked) with its taste and texture.

I doubled the sauce part of this recipe and used a 4 pound bottom round roast.
1 -2-/12 pound bottom round roast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup A1 steak sauce
1/2 cup catsup or ketchup (really depends on how you spell it)
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 325 degree Fahrenheit.  In a large heavy pot, over medium high heat, brown roast in hot oil (all sides), drain.
Blend the next five ingredients into a bowl, pour over meat.  Cover pot and place into oven and cook for 3 hours.  Remove meat from pan and place on a platter to rest for about 10 minutes, slice.  Use gravy over sliced meat.

Serve with buttered noodles and sweet and sour red cabbage.
