If you desire a tender, moist pot roast, it is important to cook at the right temperature. If you cook the pot roast too long, or at too high a heat, it can result in a dry, chewy roast. Although there are some ways to save the beef when this happens, you will need to cook it for up to 6 hours. It is possible to soften and fix the issue by slow-cooking the beef and adding moisture.
Use two forks to shred the roast. All the meat from the roast should be shredded and placed in a large pot.
You can cover the beef using the moisture source of your choosing. You can make the beef as you like it. You should ensure that the liquid does not touch the beef more than 1.2cm (1/2 in).
It is essential to use the proper temperature and cooking time when roasting a pot. This will ensure that you get a tender, juicy roast.
- There are many options for beef broth. You have the option of using sliced or canned onions, barbecue sauce or water with a few packets of onion soup.
Bring the liquid to boil. Then, immediately reduce heat until the beef simmers. Let the beef simmer on the stove for 2-6 hours.
You can use the simmered beef in sandwiches, tacos and over rice or pasta, as well as in burritos.
