Chuck roast that comes out tender and juicy after cooking all day in the crockpot.

Top Review by Dr. Mike

I find that cooking pot roast in a heavy dutch oven is the most convenient method. I brown the meat first then bake it at 250 deg for 8 hours or until fork tender. If you use a crock pot you have to use another pot to brown the meat.
