Today many new cooks are intimidated by pot roasts and have never even tried cooking a pot roast. A pot roast dinner is really a low cost highly nutritious way to serve an simple to fix hot meal.

Pot roasts are usually the cuts of beef known as the rump roast which is part of the steers leg or the chuck roast which is part of the steers shoulder. Pot roast meat is usually less expensive per pound than meats such as a tenderloin or sirloin tip which makes it an ideal choice for many families.

Because of the well marbled meat in a pot roast the stout and connective tissue make for a surprisingly tender flavorful and moist meal. Pot roasts should be slow cooked by a moist method such as braising or in a crock pot until the meat is well done. By slow cooking pot roast this inexpensive cut of meat is transformed into a tender rich and flavorful cut of meat. The palatable texture of a slow cooked pot roast blends wonderfully with cooked carrots, onions and potatoes allowing for an nearly effortless meal.
