    Some of you must be using an iPhone to view things. Pills? Bigger than a salt and pepper shaker? Really?

    They are actually a hybrid cross of cherry and roma

    Them that was doing the cooking got a little lax in their duties and created some unique 'blackened chicken and sausage"...but there was plenty other dead animal parts left to cook and eat.

    A good quality chuck roast...

    DSC00419.JPG
    Season well all sides and edges with a good dry rub. Let the meat rest a bit..the seasoning will tighten the cut up nicely.

    DSC00420.JPG
    Generously coat all sides with self rising WHEAT flour. (not that haute cuisine/new age pretend stuff) Do the edges as well as top and bottom. Pat the four into the meat and again, let it rest a couple minutes.
    DSC00423.JPG

    While that is happening, heat a couple tablespoons of veg oil in a skillet that has a lid and is large and deep enough to handle the roast and 4-5 cut up potatoes, some carrots, a whole large onion, and a whole cut up green or yellow pepper, as well as about 2-3 cups of water Medium heat. You are going to sear the whole chunk, both sides and edges. Maillard Reaction in effect. It will take several minutes each side...maybe 5-6 minutes. I sear/brown it covered and do other things while the sear takes place, stopping 1/2 way thru the process to flip it over, then hold it up on edge and sear the edges too..in my 30 yr old heavy cast aluminum skillet that the teflon long ago wore off of..

    While it's searing:
    DSC00426.JPG
    Peel (or don't) 4-5 medium large potatoes...I ended up using 5 for this one.

    DSC00427.JPG
    Cut up the potatoes into about 1" chunks..don't slice thin...you'll end up with mush.. Add one whole large onion also chunked up not sliced. 1 whole sweet pepper of whatever color or variety you like or have on hand...Poblano also works well. Chunk up about 5-6 carrots. The big ends can be smaller chunks but the skinny ends need to be longer.

    DSC00429.JPG Set preheated 350° oven for 50 minutes.

    DSC00430.JPG Turn the burner off under the skillet, and arrange the vegs around the roast in the same skillet you browned it in. Any extra flour left, just dump it unceremoniously right on top of the meat. Now, you seasoned the meat, but not the vegs...season them now.

    DSC00431.JPG
    Gently pour about 2 cups of water along the edges of the vegs..not on top of the roast. How much water is dependent upon how big your cooking vessel is. You'll figure it out.

    Cover, place it on center rack, and close the oven door. 50 minutes pull it out and check it for tenderness. The potatoes should be starting to brown on top and a wonderful gravy forming in the bottom, all by itself. It will smell wonderful.

    DSC00434.JPG

    Fork tender.

    This was a choice grade, so it didn't take over 50 minutes cook time in the oven. If you are any good at veg work at all, you do all that while it's searing, and total elapsed time ..start to finish including oven time shouldn't be over 90 minutes.


    (Now, I've not done it with a chuck roast, but some people don't sear it beforehand, but cook it all exactly the same otherwise, then just as the meat is done, they remove it from the vegs, sprinkle it with WHEAT flour and then sear it in a different skillet and after the sear, place it right back in the original skillet. I may try it sometime..)

    The corn & taters, which are boiled in the same seasoned water and pot the crawfish are cooked in...it imparts a wonderful taste and aroma to the corn and potatoes.

    There was sausage, bbq chicken, potato salad, deviled eggs, several different breads, loads of desserts as well.
    Another good family gathering.
