my son videotaped my Mom O"H a few years ago making her famous pot roast. Thought I'd share the video erev Yom Tov as I'm going to make pot roast today for Yom Tov. Notice home made pickles in the background.
This easy pot roast is packed with flavor thanks to 8 whole heads of garlic, roasted so they're mellow and sweet, plus some fresh garlic for kick, and a rich gravy full of meaty flavor. The secret ingredient: crushed gingersnaps, which help thicken the sauce and add a lovely spicy flavor perfect for fall and winter. Get the recipe.
A super hot pan, preheated under the broiler, will help to brown the underside of the steak while the broiler chars the top and cooks the meat through. The broccoli stems will become crisp-tender while the florets get deliciously frizzled.
