  • I would put it in the slow cooker with carrots, potatoes, celery and onions.

  • You can make it in the oven the same way- veggies and spices with some stock-wrap in foil and bake.

  • Put it in the crock pot. You need a little liquid - broth, water, wine, pretty much anything non-dairy works. Season how you want - a packet of onion soup mix is quick & easy, I usually leave it plain. Cook on low a few hours, then add any veggies you want and cook a couple more hours or so. I wouldn't do a chuck in the oven, or it'll come out tougher. You don't have to add veggies either - you can just cook it, then shred & bbq, or use salsa for the liquid and make tacos or any mexican dish, or just slice it up and eat it as-is.

  • it needs to be braised or marinated to tenderize. season with S&P and some thyme. brown in a pan nicely to develope some flavor. add carrots, celery, onions, garlic, bay leaf and some tomato product ( sauce, paste, diced, crushed, heck even a dab of ketchup will work). I also like a dash of worchestershire sauce and some beef broth and simmer- stian and thicken gravy with a paste made from red wine and flour. MMM! wish I had a pot roast now!

  • this is one of those things that it is nice to have a cast iron Dutch oven for or one of the enameled ones.

  • First I would brown it on both sides, then I would add some carrots, potatoes, onions, and let it cook til it falls apart. Take it out of the oven,set it on the table and enjoy.
