  • The Cheapest. . . pot roast is braised and cooked for a long period of time so it should fall apart. It doesn't make much sense to pay a lot. Alton Brown recommends a chuck roast, but I just buy whatever is cheap.

  • Chuck roast will be falling apart tender, and makes great gravy...but if you want sliced roast beef, it won't work. For a slicing roast, get a sirloin roast or standing rib. You can get a rump roast if you are going to make it med rare and slice it thinly.
