A pot roast is one of those things many have heard of but never tried. It is such a shame that it isn’t more popular as it really is amazing and a great way to cook roast cuts that wouldn’t be as tender as the more expensive cuts like Rib or Sirloin. Round roast is best but topside will also do if money is tight.
One of the great things about the dish is that it doesn’t take a lot of work or minding once in the oven so you can relax and enjoy some family time while it cooks away in your oven.
If you have a dutch oven then all the better as this is what a pot roast is traditionally cooked in. It’s basically an ovenproof pot with a lid. If you don’t have one to hand then don’t worry as you can do it in a casserole or roasting tin and cover it with tin foil.
