Simplest Pot Roast Ever

11/14/2012 01:24PM ● Published by Christie Gibson

Pot roasts are inexpensive cuts beef legs or beef shoulder that when slow cooked with fresh vegetables turns into a delightful home cooked meal. For many cooks who have never tried cooking a pot roast they may feel a bit intimidated at first. But in reality pot roasts are easy and make for a wonderful nutritious home cooked meal.

Because the leg and shoulder cuts are well marbled with fat when slow cooked the meat becomes fork tender. A trick to the perfect pot roast is to cook the meat with a moist method. To do this combine the meat and vegetables in a slow cooker or crock pot with enough broth to cover at least half the roast. Then slowly cook for 4-5 hours or until the meat is tender and tasty.

Below is a recipe for the simplest pot roast ever.

Combine in a slow cooker or crock-pot all ingredients.

1 rump roast or chuck roast
1 bay leaf
1 onion, sliced in large chunks
1 large carrot, sliced in large chunks
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp of salt
Broth to cover half way up the roast

Cook on low for 4-5 hours or until the meat is fork tender. You can serve this with baked potatoes and a fresh green salad.

By following this simple recipe you will find that your pot roast meals will have everyone to the table on time and keep them coming back for more.
