Bloody Mary Beef Pot Roast

Last weekend was unseasonably rainy and chilly here in Mars, so comfort food was in order for Sunday supper.

I had recently read a recipe KR posted on AnotherFoodieBlogger for Bloody Mary Beef Stew and was inspired to use up a bottle of Bloody Mary Mix I had in the fridge that I bought on a whim a while back when in the mood for that particular cocktail I only hanker for occasionally.

Here is what I came up with, and it was a definite HIT with my guys here.  Served with some homemade mashed potatoes (which I haven’t made in forever) just sealed the deal.  Enjoy!

Bloody Mary Beef Pot Roast

Ingredients:bloody mary beef pot roast 1

  • 2 1/2 – 3 lb. beef chuck roast
  • 2 cups bloody mary mix (your favorite)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • A shot of two of vodka (or not – whatever you like)
  • 1 head (or bunch) celery, chopped, including some of the leaves
  • 1 large sweet vidalia onion, chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 Tbsp horseradish
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

In a large skillet, saute celery, onion, and garlic (the heavenly trinity!) in olive oil for a few minutes until softened and turning translucent.  Add salt and pepper to taste, rosemary, and horseradish, and continue sauteing for a few more minutes until you start to get some little brown bits.

Make room for the beef roast in the center and brown on both sides along with the veggies.  Once the meat is browned, pour all into crockpot.

Combine bloody mary mix, water, and vodka and pour over all.  Cook on high for approximately 6 hours or until beef begins to fall apart with the touch of a fork.  Break apart and stir shredded meat into sauce.  Cook on low another hour if time allows.

Serve with mashed potatoes and a salad or vegetable side dish.  It also tastes yummy on buns as a sandwich (which we had the next day).

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. Oh my gosh would my kids love this. And again, your food photography is so beautiful. Shooting food is one of the most difficult things to do. Years ago, when I had an account with a cookie company, we had many products that were actually plastic because getting good shots of food is such a challenge.

    • What did you do in your job, Sylvia, the involved photographing cookies? Some food photography is challenging, but the good thing about it is it doesn’t move around like people – lol! It is one of my favorite subjects to photography actually 🙂


      • Twenty five years ago I was living in Cleveland. The design firm that I worked for had a cookie company as a client. We designed posters and collateral materials for them. We art directed the photo shoots for the images that we used in the designs. Sometimes after being under bright lights, the cookies would really start to look kind of grey. At one point, we did have plastic replicas of the cookies and at that time photoshop was not used, so we had an illustrator go in and add the steam coming off the cookies as if they had been freshly baked. Not an easy photo shoot. You would have had it in the bag!


  2. What a delicious looking meal Jodi, I can just see everyone sopping up the last drop of victuals, on the plate, with homemade biscuits. And, clinking their beer steins for good cheer! Have a super Saturday!

  3. You had me at “horseradish”. Since we don’t drink alcohol, I’d leave out the vodka for sure, but if a Bloody Mary is as spicy as I think, this would probably be delicious. I’ll have to check out the drink mix. Could be very useful in cooking, as you’ve shown here.

  4. Hey Jodi, thanks so much for the shout out! Your pot roast looks fantastic! I didn’t use horseradish because the mix I used was a super-spicy Cajun-style mix, and certainly didn’t need any more heat, lol! I am so glad this was a hit for the fam. xoxoxo ❤

  5. YUMZA! ❤️ I’m not a huge Bloody Mary fan but I bet it would be good with a pot roast! But my real question for you is, are you cooking with a Bloody Mary or adding it to the food?! Lol! 😉 Looks delish with those mashed potatoes!! 😄💕
