This is my mother's recipe - simple, yet a delicious comfort food.
1 lb boneless beef chuck roast
1 T. oil
Salt and Pepper
3/4 c. water
2 carrots, pared and halved
1 small onion, quartered
2 medium potatoes, pared and quartered.
In a heavy skillet, brown the meat on all sides in the hot oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the water, cover and simmer for 1 hour, adding water if necessary.
Add the vegetables and simmer 45-60 minutes, or until everything is tender.
Serve with the skimmed pan juices (do not thicken).
