The James household likes beef. But steaks are expensive. So in a discussion about meal planning and budget, Scott suggested we try roast beef a couple of times a week. Mrs. James said, "Eeww. I hate pot roast." Scott replied that roast beef and pot roast are completely different things.
The main difference between pot roast and roast beef is that pot roast is cooked in liquid and roast beef is cooked dry.
Pot roast is cooked in water, wine, stock, or broth. It’s made from chuck, brisket, or round cuts.
Roast beef is cooked dry. You can use nearly any cut of meat: rib-eye roast, rump roast, sirloin roast, chuck roast. Or, get fancier with prime rib, strip loin, or tenderloin.
But damnit, pot roasts and roast beef are not the same things.
Mrs. James disagrees. In Scott and Sadie's Debate of the day, please vote...
