I call this my 'famous Seamus' pot roast because my tiny Siamese cat, Seamus, sat in the kitchen the entire time this pot roast was cooking. I've been making this recipe for 40+ years and I just throw the ingredients together; it's very forgiving. My son-in-law also says it's the best thing he ever ate. When boys hang around the oven, it can't be bad.
This really does live up to the description and the other reviews. It did look dry but was deliciously "melty"(!) when ready for eating and between 8 of us we managed to get through a 1.7kg lump of silverside with the children disappointed that there wasn't more. You must try. I plan for this to become a regular family Sunday meal. - 27 Dec 2012
This recipe is great. I have kind of refined it down to make prep quicker. Do veg separately. Half bottle of Red wine (stops drying out meat). Fine chopped onion. Same herbs. Tight lid fitting Casserole pot. Sear Joint, chuck in everything. Silver foil lid. Oven 4 hours 140C. comes outperfect. Kids love it cos Meat melts in mouth! - 17 Aug 2014
