This is a simple stovetop roast for the momma who's never made a stovetop roast in her life (aka, me.) Every roast that I've cooked has been in the slow cooker (with varying levels of success . . . this one and this one are my favorites for the slow cooker. . .) however this simple stovetop roast just might be my favorite roast ever.
It doesn't take much work in the kitchen at all, and the results are fantastic. (Seriously, my little girl just kept asking for more “chicken” over and over . . . apparently she thinks the only thing we serve around here is chicken.) 😉 My husband declared it “almost as good as Bob Evans” and my kids agreed it actually beat Bob Evans, so I'm one pleased mom. And, the best part is we'll turn the leftovers into open face roast sandwiches . . .yummmmmm! Here's the recipe so you can impress your family too.
Also . . . I'm already planning to make this for my in-laws when they come to visit because it's *almost* gluten free ~ except for the flour in the gravy. I'm wondering if corn starch would work in place of the flour to thicken the gravy? If you eat a gluten free diet and have any tips, I'd love for you to share them!
