Even growing up in a Chinese-American family that predominantly ate Chinese food, I knew what pot roast was. I'd seen it mentioned on television and read enough about this classic American dish to know that it was homey and delicious.
Now that I have my own young family to feed, I truly understand why pot roast is so popular — it's inexpensive, yields a ton of servings, and makes the whole house smell delicious and warm. Although it's pretty hard to screw up pot roast, there is one big factor that will make or break the dish: choosing the right cut of beef.
