WHAT IS POT ROAST?

Pot roast is a big, tough cut of beef. Typically, it’s priced cheaply. Tough cuts are perfect for slow cooking. You can sear, cover, and cook these cuts slowly in the oven or slow cooker with herbs and veggies until they are fall-apart tender.

WHAT BEEF CUTS DO I USE?

The nice thing about beef pot roast is that you can use inexpensive cuts of meat. Tough cuts with lots of connective tissue like chuck, brisket, and round are perfect to cook low and slow.

Cooking it ‘low and slow’ in the crockpot for incredibly tender and juicy.

Chuck: Chuck roast, shoulder steak, boneless chuck roast, chuck shoulder pot roast, chuck seven-bone pot roast, or beef chuck arm. My first choice for pot roast. It has outstanding marbling, making the roast tender and juicy

Brisket: Brisket comes from the well-exercised breast section of the cow, and this means it has a lot of connective tissue. It’s most known for barbecue recipes and typically cooked in a smoker. However, brisket makes a great pot roast.

Round: Rump roast or bottom round. It is leaner than either the brisket or chuck, so you may need to add some additional fat to prevent your pot roast from drying out.

Slow cooking these cuts breaks the collagen down, tenderizing the meat. The beef releases its juices into the broth, providing your roast with incredible flavor. Adding flour or cornstarch thickens the juices into gravy.

For leftovers, I enjoy making hoagies.

HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER CARIBBEAN POT ROAST

  1. PREP:  Brown the roast and add it to the slow cooker with seasonings.
  2. COOK: Cook on high for 5-6 hours or on low for 8 to 9 hours until the beef is fork-tender.
  3. SHRED: Using forks, shred the beef and return it to the juices. Stir to combine and let it warm for at least 20 minutes.

To Serve: You can serve the roast alone with sides like Creamed Spinach, Parmesan Noodles, and Soft Fluffy Yeast Rolls. I also like to make Hoagies or Sliders. (Slider and hoagies are great for parties and game day.)
