Introduction:Pot roasts are great meals for busy families. Stick it in a crock pot and it is finished without any fuss. When cooking a pot roast, make sure you have the right ingredients.
It doesn't have to be the best cut of beef, but it does have to have some fat on it. This will add to the flavor and make the meat more tender.
Lots of onions. Tons of onions. The flavor onions add to a pot roast can't be duplicated by anything else. If you're low on onions, make a quick run to the store for more. Put them in first to maximize their effect.
Pot roast isn't pot roast without garlic. Chopped coarsely and finely to get the full effect. Throw in a few big chunks for an explosion of flavor when you bite into it.
Potatoes are a must. When cooking a pot roast in a crock pot, add them last. Let them set on top of the other ingredients so they will steam and not over-cook, causing them to break apart.
Celery adds a unique taste to pot roasts. Add them with the onions so you can get the maximum flavor. Cut in small pieces to reduce "celery strings."
