OK, everyone loves a GOOD pot roast. Unfortunately, everyone HATES a bad pot roast. Anyone who has had a dried out piece of boiled beef knows that it can go horribly wrong. There is a secret to perfect pot roast every time, and the biggest part is how you cook it. I've had a few failures, but none of them have been when I used a slow cooker. The lower heat and extended cooking time has never done me wrong. The second mistake people often make is not taking the time to brown the meat before cooking adding the liquid. After years of experimenting, I think I have got the recipe down perfectly, so I present to you here, my perfect pot roast.
