My Favorite Pot Roast


"This is one of my favorite ways to prepare pot roast. I've included the directions for either an electric skillet, or top of the stove cooking, pretty simple actually, just requires planning ahead. I usually do a 3 pound chuck roast that is generally uniform in thickness, but go toward the longer cooking time for a larger roast. Of course, if you can find it, a roast with bones will taste best! Feel free to tweak the seasonings."
