Retro Cooking Month - (Easy!) Beef Pot Roast

It seems that I never put any healthy recipies up for Retro Cooking Month.  I guess this recipe will be the closest to "healthy" as I get for family recipes.  I do a lot of cooking out of South Beach© for my diet, but because of that little ©, I'd rather not risk posting their recipes here.

This is my mother's recipe for Beef Pot Roast.

You Will Need:

3lbs Beef Cubed
1/4 Cup Butter
3 Carrots Chopped 
4 Stalks Celery Chopped
1 Medium Onion Chopped
1 Clove Garlic Chopped
1 10 1/2oz can Beef Broth
1/2 Cup Red Wine
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1/8 tsp. Black Pepper (or more for personal taste)
5-5 Red Potatoes cut into 4's

This is a very easy recipe to cook. 

1. Brown beef on all sides in heated butter skillet.  Make sure the skillet has a tight fitting cover. 
2. Add carrots, celery, onion and garlic and cook until the onion is golden.  Stir occasionally.
3. Blend thoroughly.  Add beef broth* and remaining ingredients.  Cover and simmer 2 -3 hours or till beef is tender.  Serve plain or over egg noodles.
           *If you would like a thicker broth, you can add some flour and stir to combine.
