What is the best cut of meat for a slow cooker pot roast?
I like Chuck roast or shoulder steak for making this pot roast with mushrooms recipe. The texture of these cuts of meat is perfect for low and slow cooking, which results in a nice, tender pot roast every time. Brisket can be used as well, but the meat will be more stringy.
Do you have to brown a roast before putting it in the crockpot?
While you can brown a roast to add more flavor to the roast before placing it in the crockpot, you certainly do not have to. You can still have a flavorful, tender roast while skipping this step.
