This is the pot roast recipe that beats all pot roast recipes! Total time is 5 or so hours; but it really only takes 15 minutes to get this in the oven, then you forget about it.

Adding the cream at the end brings what is already an amazing sauce to the next level. 
Now we see you shaking your head and saying "Nope, no way" to the Marmite / Vegemite... don't worry. You won't taste 'it', but all of the other flavours will burst forward after a Marmite boost.

We make ours in a cast iron Dutch oven - but this could just as easily be cooked in a Crock Pot or slow cooker.
