Best Meat For Pot Roast
One of the best meat for pot roast to use is called a 7 bone chuck roast. This is named for the bone that is in the roast that is somewhat shaped like the number 7. You can see this in the lower left portion of this picture.
Once you have your roast, season both sides of the roast generously with salt and pepper. It may look like a lot, but the meat is fairly thick. Sprinkle both sides with flour, and pat the flour into the roast (this is known as “spanking in the flour”.)
Sear the meat by putting in a large skillet on Med-High heat with 2 TBSP vegetable oil. Let the oil get hot first and sear until the meat gets nice and crispy brown on both sides.
After removing the meat, add some fresh mushrooms to the skillet (turned down to medium) along with a pat of butter. After about 3-4 minutes add a cut up onion and cook for about 5 minutes more, then add some minced garlic for a minute, then add about a tablespoon of flour. This will help thicken the sauce later.
