Dilled Pot Roast - 4 Servings


¹∕³ cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2½ pounds beef roast, rump, chuck or arm cut
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
2 onions, peeled and cut into eighths
2 carrots, peeled and sliced into 1-inch pieces
1 celery rib, with tops, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 teaspoon dill seed
½ teaspoon peppercorns
¼ cup nonfat, low-sodium beef stock
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

cooking juices from beef
3 tablespoons instant flour
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1 teaspoon dill weed
½ cup lowfat sour cream


Combine flour with salt and pepper. Coat beef with flour mixture, shaking off excess. Heat oil in a Cuisinart® 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat; brown beef on all sides. Transfer to platter or cutting board; cool for a few moments. Rub mustard evenly over all sides of the beef.
Place onions, carrots, celery, garlic, dill seed and peppercorns in the ceramic pot of the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker. Top with the mustard-coated beef. Pour in stock and vinegar. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 10 to 12 hours and press Low; slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm when cooking time has elapsed.
Remove beef, transfer to storage container, strain and discard vegetables. Pour cooking juices over beef; cover and refrigerate overnight. One hour before serving, remove beef (reserve juices), and cut off visible fat. Place in a small roasting pan and reheat at 325°F for 30 to 45 minutes. Strain cooking juices into a Cuisinart® 2¾-quart saucepan; discard fat. Add flour, mustard and dill weed; stir over medium heat until sauce comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat, cool briefly and stir in sour cream. Taste for seasoning and add ¼ teaspoon salt if desired. Cut meat into thin slices; pour some sauce over the top and pass the rest in a sauceboat.
