This Beef Pot Roast Recipe is one of those all-time favorite recipes, what is often referred to as comfort food. My family and the restaurant guests love pot roast. It makes them feel really good.
Slowly cooking the beef is the real secret to this recipe. It produces a moist, fork tender, flavorful meal and adding vegetables to the same pot makes this meal complete and absolutely delicious.
The term "pot roast" can describe either a cut of beef or this cooking method.
I usually use a chuck roast for this meal, but you can also use a top or bottom round if you want to reduce the fat.
And even though the pot roast method was originally devised to cook tougher cuts of beef, I also like the fact that this method puts an entire meal in only one pot.
Browning the meat enhances the flavor and seals in the juices and adds color.
There are many ways you can modify this recipe and basic cooking technique. Add you favorite root vegetables and some different seasonings. The possibilities are almost endless. Don't be afraid to substitute with the ingredients you have on hand. Enjoy!
