Oh, no, you had a flat tire and company is coming in just 2 hours. That pot roast you were going to cook in the oven will never get done in time. Move the popcorn out of the way and get that roast cooked to perfection in your microwave!

Ingredients

  • 3 - 4 pounds beef pot roast (chuck is a good choice)

  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 3 yellow squash, sliced in 1/4" rounds
  • 3 zucchini, sliced in 1/4" rounds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes

Directions

  2. Sprinkle the onions around and on the roast.
  3. Drizzle the onions and roast with the olive oil.
  4. Pour the beef broth into the pan.
  5. Sprinkle the salt, black pepper, red pepper, parsley, rosemary, thyme, and sage around and over the roast.
