Herbed Pot Roast

Herbed Pot Roast - adapted from Pioneer Woman's recipe

1 3-4 lb. pot roast
4 tbs olive oil, separated
1 tbs kosher salt
1tbs Cajun seasoning
1 tbs chili powder
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried thyme
1 can beef broth
3 carrots, cut into chunks

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Season roast with kosher salt, Cajun seasoning, and chili powder.  Heat 2 tbs olive oil over medium high heat in large oven safe pot.  Brown roast well on all sides.  Remove and set aside.

Add remaining 2 tbs of olive oil to pot.  Cook carrots just long enough to give them a little color. Deglaze pot with beef broth.  Add roast and carrots back to pot.  Add enough water to cover roast half way.  Season with rosemary and thyme.  Cover and bake for 1 hour per pound of roast.  Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.
