Pot roast with various vegetables
Upgrade Your Pot Roast With These 15 Tasty Additions
Broth Or Stock
Flavorful liquid, such as beef broth or stock, can be a helpful addition to your meat. Beef broth will have similar flavors to the beef, so the parallel works nicely.
Give pot roast a flavor upgrade with harissa. This Moroccan spice is a mix of chili peppers, olive oil, lemon, and salt, while some have cumin, coriander, caraway, or mint.
You'll find both a liquid sauce made with an oil base or a dry spice blend of harissa. This blend of flavors and spices
can enhance pot roast giving
it a spicy twist.
Dijon Mustard
Dijon mustard is a sharp ingredient to upgrade the flavor of a slow cooker pot roast that brings a touch of heat as well as some acidity.
Use it as a rub to coat your roast. Sear your roast with a little salt and fresh cracked pepper, then mix the mustard with any of the liquid you have for cooking.
Soda is a popular addition to marinades because it offers tenderness to meats and roasts thanks to the phosphoric acid it contains.
When choosing soda, keep it simple with a plain soda pop. You don't want vanilla soda, root beer, or anything that might be too overpowering for a pot roast.
Worcestershire Sauce
Worcestershire sauce has ingredients like vinegar, molasses, malt vinegar, garlic powder, anchovies, tamarind extract, cloves, and chili pepper.
Adding about 2 tablespoons to your pot roast creates a reduced sauce that provides a myriad of sweet, tangy, and spicy flavors.
