Less tender cuts of beef, such as Chuck Roasts, Blade Roasts and Shoulder Roasts should be slow-cooked (or braised) instead of roasted. Use a large skillet, Dutch Oven, or other pan that has a tight fitting lid. Bottom Round or Rump Roasts can be either oven-roasted or braised.

First, brown the meat, using a small amount of oil. Drain off the pan drippings and season as desired, then add water or other liquid… about 1-1/2 to 2 cups for pot roasts, enough liquid to cover the meat for stews. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover tightly and simmer gently over low heat until the meat is fork tender. Cook a 2-1/2 to 4 lb. chuck roast for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
