Filipino Style Pot Roast in Creamy Mushroom Gravy is usually served on special occasions where buffet dining is present, I saw this almost every time when I am invited to such occasion back in the Philippines.

Pot Roast

  1. Season whole beef with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place 1/4 cup flour in a flat surface and roll beef to coat lightly.

  5. Place in a 180C preheated oven and bake for 1.5 hours or until fork tender.

  3. In a heavy pan add the butter and melt in low heat. Add flour then cook until it forms a roux.
  4. Gradually add 3 cups of stock from the baked beef while continuously mixing.
  5. Add cream, continue to cook until it becomes a smooth sauce.
  6. Add the mushrooms and carrots and simmer in low heat of for 5 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
