  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat; cook beef roast in the hot oil until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water, vinegar, and 1 teaspoon dill to the pot. Cover pot and simmer until pot roast is tender, about 2 hours.

  • Arrange potatoes and carrots around roast; cover pot and cook until potatoes are tender, about 40 minutes. Add zucchini to roast mixture; cook until zucchini is tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Transfer roast and vegetables to a warm serving platter; cover loosely with aluminum foil. Pour the remaining drippings into a bowl.

  • Whisk 1 tablespoon drippings and 1 tablespoon flour together in the same pot; cook and stir over low heat until smooth and bubbly, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Pour remaining drippings into a measuring cup, adding enough water for total liquid to equal 1 cup.

  • Return pot to stove and stir drippings-water mixture into flour mixture; bring to a boil and cook gravy for 1 minute. Remove pot from heat and season gravy with salt and pepper. Stir sour cream and 1 teaspoon dill into gravy until smooth. Heat gravy over low heat until warmed, 2 to 3 minutes; serve alongside roast and vegetables.

I changed the method a bit because I cooked the meat onions and carrots in the crockpot with a can of beef broth (5 hours on high or 10 on low). I also added some jalapeños to the meat because we like everything spicy. Mashed potatoes to go with it. The gravy was yum! The meat fell apart. Will definitely do this again! Read More

the gravy was quite bland. I added onions Scallions chives and garlic to give it some flavor. It's going to be an experiment if I make it again. Read More

We loved this recipe! I added an onion with the vegetables and left out the zucchini. The sour cream dill gravy was wonderful! I will definitely make this roast again! Read More

I used sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes but otherwise followed directions as listed but cooked in slow cooker instead of on stove top. It turned out delicious. Read More

I used thyme instead of dill (not a fan) and it was the very best roast I've ever made! We were so tired of pot roast in the crock pot and this stove-top simmered roast was awesome. The gravy portion of the instructions wasn't as complicated as this...I just added the sour cream to the pot and mixed it and it was done. Read More
