To cook a pot roast it only takes a bit of preparation. The first thing you will need to do in preparation for any meal is to make sure you have all your ingredients sitting to the side, so you don’t forget anything. Now, let’s get to these steps on making a pot roast.

Step 1:

Step 5:

After that, place some olive oil in a pan on medium-high. So, once it becomes hot, place the pieces of pot roast in the pan and let cook on each side until it becomes golden and looks crusted.

Note: The meat will not be done at this point.
