What kind of beef is best for pot roast

Chuck or Round roast is traditionally and widely used for a pot roast. Its inexpensive and you usually can get a good deal when buying in bulk. when this cut of meat is cooked for a long time, or short time under pressure, like in this recipe, it becomes very tender and flavorful. You can also go with a more expensive cut, brisket. Cut it against the grain and give it a try.
