view recipe online:
Season the flour with salt and pepper and blend thoroughly. Roll the roast in the flour-and-salt mixture. Heat the oil in an ovenproof stew pot large enough to cover the pot roast. Sear the roast for 4 min. on each side, or until well browned. Add the ketchup, carrots, sweet potatoes, onion, and garlic. Cook the stew for 5 minutes. Add the beef stock, cover, and bring to a boil. Place the pan in a 300 oven and cook for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the beef is very tender.

Serves 6 to 8.
