  1. I am estimating the ingredient amounts. It really depends on the size of the roast you want to cook. I used a 5.5 lb roast last time and it came out perfect.
  2. Rinse and pat dry roast.
  3. Cover all sides of roast with coat of butter. Use as much butter as required to cover.
  4. Pat all sides of roast with flour. Use as much flour as required to cover.
  5. Cook roast in 325 degree oven for 1 hour.
  6. Remove roast, cover with foil and let sit for 20 minutes.
  7. To make gravy (recommended), spoon of fat from pan drippings.
  8. Put pan over heat and mix in 1/3 cup flour and salt (to taste). Use a slotted spoon to scrape the pan and combine in pan drippings from the roast.
  9. Mix in water and flour and continue stirring and adding water and flour until gravy reaches desired thickness.
