The No-Brainer Beef Supper
There's nothing crazy about this pot roast, just a tried-and-true dish you can lean on whenever you're not up for putting much thought into dinner. The ingredient list is amazingly brief: onions, salt, pepper, potatoes, carrots and a three- or four-pound piece of chuck roast. You can add them all to the pot at once; or, if you prefer firmer carrots, slip the veggies in for just the last two hours. Either way, the finished dish is warm and filling, the epitome of comfort food.
