Amish Pot Roast

Yesterday my new Dutch Oven arrived from Amazon, yay! I’ve never actually had a real Dutch oven, so I couldn’t wait to try something in it. I chose a recipe from Annie’s called Amish Pot Roast. Now honestly, I am not really sure how “Amish” this really is. I mean, did the Amish really use soy sauce?? Hmmm. At any rate, it’s downright delicious and very easy to put together!

I used a 4.5 pound rump roast for this dish. I did check it about every hour and it was plenty done just under 4 hours. I paired it with some jasmine rice and green beans. I also spooned out most of the onions and the bay leaves from the juice and served that along side the roast for a very delicious meal!

    I just bought a Lodge dutch oven a few weeks back too! Mine’s the one with the lid that doubles as a skillet. I love it! This looks yummy!
