Pot Roast is a favorite here. Just made a 4Lb Chuck last week. My 2 kids in PA found out their sister was coming and insisted she bring leftovers to them. This is a One Pot Meal! The meat is fall apart tender. My 87 year old Mom ate it with No Teeth! I make this with OX Tails but my wife says it is too rich......JJ
