I decided to try the Pioneer Woman's method for making the perfect pot roast to see if it worked. Guess what? It did work! I cooked it in my dutch oven at 275 degrees for four hours and it was divine! I could cut it with a fork. It shredded beautifully and was not tough at all.
I don't think I'll go back to my crockpot cooking method. Unless of course I get a new crockpot (I think mine is a lot hotter than it should be).
I'll leave you with my perfect bite of pot roast. A little carrot, tender meat, and mashed potatoes. Yum!
