Autumn Pot Roast. If you want a delicious veggie packed pot roast recipe, then look no further. The flavorfully spiced beef is nestled in a luscious broth and topped with butternut squash, green beans, and anaheim chiles (New Mexico chile). It’s absolutely perfect for a fall day to fill your house with a delicious aroma and your belly with an even more delicious pot roast. This is definitely not your nana’s recipe.

What a wonderful autumn day! And what better to have for dinner than Pot Roast. There’s something about eating pot roast on a cool day after being outside raking leaves or giving your trees their final fall haircut. This recipe is simple to make and easily customizable to whatever veggies you prefer. I highly recommend making it as written the first time though. It’s a keeper.

How to make Autumn Pot Roast

  1. Sear the seasoned beef in a hot cast iron Dutch oven.
  2. Add beer, spices, Worcestershire sauce, fresh rosemary and thyme. Cover and roast in the oven for 1 hour at 350ºF.
  3. Remove the Dutch oven and add the potatoes, carrots, squash, and green beans, cover and roast for another 1 1/2 hours. Remove immediately for medium, otherwise cook a little longer for a more well done roast. Slice or shred and serve with the vegetables and jus.
