Expert Tips

  • Besides being delicious, this recipe is a good source of protein, vitamins A, C and iron
  • Don't panic if your pot roast sticks to the bottom of the pot. Many cooks contend that a good pot roast needs to "catch on" for proper browning and flavor. Just make sure it cooks at a gentle simmer and enough liquid remains for the entire simmer time.
