Dredge a 4 pound chuck or shoulder beef roast with a mixture of flour, salt and pepper. Place 3 or 4 patties of butter in bottom of roaster pan. Put meat in pan and put 3 or 4 patties of butter on top of meat. Bake at 350 degrees F for one hour, uncovered. Add 1 cup of water, cover and bake for 2 more hours at 250 degrees F.
-- Notes --
This recipe works equally well with other inexpensive cuts of beef like the Eye of Round Roast, Bottom Round or Rump Roast, and the Top or inside Round Roast.
For even richer and more savory pan juices, and eventually gravy, try substituting Beef Broth or Beef Consomme for the water.
For a complete meal, add your favorite vegetables (onions, potatoes, carrots, celery, mushroom, etc.) and once cooked, simply season and thicken the pan juices, and your meal is finished.
