Whats the best way to prepare a beef pot roast? I'm cooking one this afternoon but not sure the best way to prepare it to keep it juicy and tender?
For a pot roast or chuck roast, I sprinkle both sides with seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then brown it good in a small amt. of oil before cooking it either in a crock pot for a few hours or in the oven for a few hours with 1 pkg. of onion soup mix, 2 or 3 onions and a couple of beef bouillon cubes. (makes a richer, beefier gravy) Sometimes I add celery, baby carrots and quartered potatoes 1/2 way through the cooking time. Otherwise, I make mashed potatoes and I make gravy with the broth that's in the pot. I have one in the oven right now and it's smelling soooo good!!!

My kids thought I made a wonderful pot roast years ago. I would put the post roast in the pan, put a can of cream of mushroom soup with 1/2 packet of french onion soup or dip mix. I would put in a little water, potatoes, and carrots, and let cook. It was great, and the gray was there already.
