Pot roasts

Pot-roasting turns a variety of tough and typically inexpensive meat cuts -- traditionally beef, pork, or lamb -- succulent. Easy make-ahead dinners that often freeze well, pot roasts can be made even more flavorful with vegetables like onions, carrots, and potatoes.

recipe

Benedetta Vitali, owner of Zibibbo restaurant in Florence, Italy, prepares pot roast in a uniquely Tuscan style. Instead of slowly braising a less tender cut of meat, she quickly cooks browned rump roast in a small amount of liquid and serves it rare with sauteed spinach.

recipe

Perfect for pot roast recipes, inexpensive chuck is one of the most flavorful cuts of beef. Simmering it slowly and gently in the oven results in a wonderfully tender pot roast. Vegetables like onions and potatoes give the pot roast recipe even more comforting flavors.
