Second Course >> Pot Roast with Mushrooms

Pot Roasting is the way I prefer to cook a chunk of meat.  Making pot roast is easy, and gives the best result.

Pot Roast is slowly pan cooked on the stove top. It will retain the moisture and it will be juicy, flavorful, and tender.You cannot fail if you follow these easy step-by-step instructions.

The dry Porcini mushrooms give a lot of flavor to the pot roast. Prepare pot roast for a nice dinner with friends and family. In the pictures you see me making a TRI-TIP Pot Roast. I like tri-tip because is generally tender and tasty. Is a thinner cut of meat and cooks faster. Remember to trim away all the fat that comes with it.
