Pot Roast

I am always thrilled when a roast comes out perfect!!! Shockingly, I have yet to really pay much attention to the cut of meat. This is key to the perfect roast?!?! But, I do remember where this roast sat in the meat case. And this roast was a winner, it was perfect & tender.  So I will catch the name next time I go, and I will also post an other version of pot roast 😉  I know this much, you want a good marble of fat throughout the roast.

Since I am only cooking for myself, I cut this roast in half and froze the rest for an other meal. In the eight years of living single, with the occasional roommate actually partaking in a meal here and there. I am just now learning how to cook small meals. haha you may be thinking how is hard to cook small meals. Well, when you come from a family of eight, you learn to cook in mass quantities. It has come in handy many times.

Any how here is why your even here in the first place…. THE RECIPE!!

Produce Tip

Navel Oranges

Navels are considered the finest eating orange in the world, with a sweet and juicy flavor, these seedless oranges peel and segment easily. 

Navels are known as the “winter orange” because they are available only between October and May, with peak season January through March. The Fresh Market sources our oranges from California during the winter, and from Australia during the summer, so you always have the freshest navel oranges.

Fun Fact: Did you know, an orange tree can grow up to 30 feet fall and live for over 100 years?
