All American Pot Roast

(8 servings)

1 large onion
1 bag of carrots
1 rib of celery
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 1/2 pounds chuck roast
1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons flour
salt and pepper to taste

Cut onion, carrot and celery in 2" chunks. Heat oil in a Dutch oven . Brown roast on all sides, about 15 minutes. Remove meat from oven. Add vegetables to oven and cook until golden, about 10 minutes.

Return meat to pot and add 1 cup of water, 2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, thyme and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 2 1/2 hours.

Turn meat occasionally. Remove meat to a platter. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm.

Discard all the vegetables and the bay leaf. Skim fat from pan juices. Gradually add 1/2 cup water into the flour. Add the flour mixture to the pan and cook, stirring, until the gravy comes to a boil and thickens.
