Sawdust Pot Roast

Who can forget the taste and smell of old time butcher shop meat? Just entering an old fashioned butcher shop was like walking into a venerable temple of meat with the loins and chops set out on butcher paper and even your footsteps hushed by the layer of sawdust that covered the floor. And what a temple it was - there was nothing quite like an old fashioned butcher shop pot roast.

Food Tiger offers you that old time butcher shop flavor with our Sawdust Pot Roast with that "fresh from the butcher shop floor" flavor that modern meat lacks. Not every store offers you this goodness, and some stores even use synthetics, like those plastic "peanuts", instead of natural wood flakes for coating their roasts. So, accept no substitutes.

For those of you who can't get enough of that traditional goodness, we also offer our Food Tiger Cooking Grade Sawdust in distinctive orange and black striped bags. But, there is nothing like a Sawdust Pot Roast to bring back the memories. This is truly an off the floor dish!



  1. In a large pot, brown the roast in vegetable oil over medium heat, turning it as it cooks so it is nicely browned all over. Remove from the pot.
  2. Peel and slice the onions and carrots and cook them in the meat pot for about 5 minutes.
  3. Cut up the potatoes into chunks and add them to the pot. Add water to cover and bring it to a boil for about 10 - 15 minutes, until the potatoes start to soften.
  4. Add the Drano and wait for the explosive reaction to die down.
  5. Then, add the meat and let it cook for 90 minutes, until it acquires a faint green glow.
  6. Remove the pot from the heat. Remove the roast and let it stand for 10 - 15 minutse before serving.
