This easy pot roast is wonderful family fare and a favorite to serve guests. I serve it with noodles or rice. I owe my love of creative cooking to my late mother, who was a professional cook. —Judy Poor Overland Park, Kansas


  • 1 bone-in beef chuck roast (3-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon dill seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons dill weed


  1. In a Dutch oven, brown roast in oil on all sides; drain. Sprinkle with dill seed, salt and pepper. Add water and vinegar to the pan. Cover and bake at 325° for 3 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Remove roast and keep warm. Pour drippings into a measuring cup. Strain and skim fat, reserving 3 tablespoons fat and all of the drippings. In a small saucepan, heat reserved fat and drippings; stir in flour until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Stir in the sour cream and dill weed heat through (do not boil). Serve with the roast.
