Pot roasts are done when a long-handled fork can be inserted into the thickest part of the roast easily. If the pot roast is cooked until it falls apart, the meat is actually overcooked and will be stringy, tough and dry.
I make this hearty stovetop favorite at least twice a month- my husband, Jim, loves it! You can use whatever vegetables are abundant in your garden. I like to cut up the leftovers, add gravy and warm it up like a stew.
In Ogden, Utah, Arlene Butler uses her slow cooker to prepare this tender pot roast. Convenient packages of dressing and gravy combine in a delicious sauce. TIP: For a filling meal in one, serve it over mashed potatoes.
