Italian Pot Roast with Roasted Potatoes

While shopping yesterday morning, the pot roasts looked delicious, but I wanted a different twist on it.  A few years ago, I tried my hand at making Italian Pot Roast, but I wasn’t exactly pleased with the way it turned out.  I researched some different recipes online tonight & added my own variation to them.

Slow cook your pot roast in a crock pot or you can cook it in a pressure cooker if you are in a hurry.  Either way, the roast is very tender!

Considering we eat leftovers for lunch the following day, I cook 2 roasts at a time.  I add 4 celery stalks, salt & pepper and 2 diced yellow onions (or 1 package Lipton Dry Onion Soup Mix) to the crock pot or pressure cooker.

After the roasts are fully cooked, I add the following:

1 jar Roasted Red Peppers with 1 Tbsp. of the juice

6 whole Sun-dried Tomatoes or 1 slightly drained can of Diced Tomatoes

Beef Stock or Broth as needed.

6 cloves Garlic (or garlic salt)

2 Tbsp. Parsley

1/4-1/2 cup white cooking wine


Cook Rice separately.

Make a gravy with the broth.

When making your plate, put rice on the bottom, gravy in the middle and meat with veggies on top.


I served roasted potatoes on the side.

Preheat oven 450.  Spray a baking sheet with coconut oil.

3 large Diced Brown Potatoes, lightly coated in Olive oil, 1 Pack Lipton Dry Savory Herb & Garlic Salt.

Cook for 40 minutes or until fully cooked.


Hope you enjoy!

    1. We are gluten free. We try to cut back on soy and dairy intakes as well. Like you, I had to learn to be creative. I made a Mexican roast a few years ago & carnitas last year. I will have to dig those recipes out. I shared your blog with a friend. She is new to the dairy free life & you know that it’s hard to adjust to. I’m so glad there are people willing to share their recipes & experiences!!! 🙂
