How to Cook a Pot Roast in the Oven

Knowing how to cook a pot roast in the oven lets you spend more with your family during a Sunday supper, and less time in the kitchen.

Directions
1. 
Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. 
Divide butter into 2 equal pieces. Add one piece to each of 2 jelly-roll or large broiler pans; place pans in oven for 1 minute, until butter melts. Divide turnips between pans, toss with butter and spread in a single layer; roast 5 to 7 minutes. Divide and add potatoes and squash to the turnips and roast 30 minutes more, switching pans halfway through, until vegetables are tender.
3. 
After 20 minutes, begin to microwave pot roast as directed. Toss vegetables with thyme, salt and pepper. Slice beef and transfer to a serving platter. Spoon gravy over top. Serve with roasted vegetables and broccoli, if desired. Garnish with thyme sprigs.
