Pot Roast Recipe

Who doesn’t love a good All American pot roast? This classic meal takes me back to being a kid in snowy Pennsylvania, when I would come inside from being out playing in the snow and the fragrance of Mom’s pot roast would send my olfactory sensors into overdrive. So, I’m sharing my recipe (the Weight Watchers version) with you in the hopes that you’ll savor it the same way I have. This method of cooking an inexpensive cut of meat makes it so tender that this recipe will always be one of my favorite meals. And the best part is that it’s assembled very quickly, in 15 minutes or less, and then requires no more attention until it is done! Woo hoo!

Albóndigas, which means meatballs in Spanish, are found in Sopa de Albondigas, a popular food dish that originated in Mexico. In this recipe, the meatballs are made with rice in them and the broth is usually chicken based. The following vegetables are commonly used in this dish: onion, carrots, potatoes, squashes, chayote, and seasonings such as cilantro, mint, salt, and garlic.

When mixing the rice and meat together, I’d recommend adding raw eggs so that when the meatballs are dropped into the boiling pot they will stiffen a bit and won’t break apart on you! Though, if you add the eggs, just remember to count in those extra Weight Watchers Points!

If you want to bulk up this dish for the non-dieters, you can follow the tradition of the Mexican Northwest, by accompanying the dish with warm rolled tortillas topped with mayonnaise and salsa. Yum!
