Two Pack Slow Cooker Roast
What is pot roast?
Pot roast is a big, tough beef cut that’s priced cheap. These 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?
Tough cuts with lots of connective tissue like chuck, brisket, and round are the perfect cuts to use.
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.
