Roast Beef with Yukon Gold Potatoes

Sometimes the simple meals are the best. Normally I would have put this in a baking dish and cooked it in the oven. But, I happen to be out of aluminum foil at the moment. Well, actually, I've been out of it for a while, but keep forgetting to pick some up at the store! This recipe will work for any cut of roast. You can also substitute the potato of your choice or add other vegetables.
Roast Beef with Yukon Gold Potatoes
1 & 1/2 pound roast
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons canola oil
6 large Yukon Gold potatoes
1 cup beef broth
2 cups water
Pre-heat skillet with oil on high heat. Season roast with pepper, salt and garlic powder on all sides. Brown meat quickly on all sides. Place in large pot. Add water, worcestershire sauce, and broth; bring to a boil. Wash and prepare potatoes - do not peel. Add potatoes to pot. Reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 1 to 2 hours adding more water or broth if necessary.
