Pot roast

Much Like Mother Accustomed To Make

Pot roast would be a standard becoming an adult, and is proven to maintain my parent’s household. It takes slow cooking over low heat to make sure tender, flavorful meat.
Pot roasts typically make use of the tougher cuts of beef—a chuck roast or shoulder roast—which possess the most flavor. The slow cooking at low heat is exactly what melts the challenging ligament between your muscle tissue, departing you with tender meat that flakes apart together with your fork.
This really is my mother’s attempted and true recipe for pot roast. She only adds one half cup of liquid towards the pot because she’s effective in keeping heat really low and her pot includes a tight cover.
