Where the OP said it was such a small roast, I figured it would fit the skillet. However, using a foil lid if necessary is a good idea.
I was thinking of the exception, Revere Ware. The plastic handles don't work well in an oven. I have nothing that won't go from the stove top to the oven

Since you are just starting out you might try braising the meat and veggies in the rectangular pan in the oven covered with tin foil. Also, for about $20.00 you can get some servicable used pots and pans from a Salvation Army store to tide you over until you can afford better stuff. Best wishes.

Buying used is the best way to stock a kitchen on a budget. Generally cheap and of better quality than new. Nearlyall of my pots and pans were purchased used.

My wife and I when first married bought most of our unique seving diahes and ware used at flea markets and garage sales.
We had a bigger collection that anyone we knew.Two,three and four compartment trays,egg servers and relish sets.We used to throw a lot of parties.Kids changed all that!

Sam's club had sets of fine bone china, we got, it was like a 1/10 of the price in stores like Macy's. Same exact stuff. No need to buy old junk. Just have to look for. In Nemen Markus they have clearance flor where they sell a lot of stuff too. We got a huge set silverewhere there for $99. Original price was around $600.

Good Eats did an episode called "A chuck for Chuck" where AB used several layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil to make a pouch to cook the roast in.

OP took me back in time - just starting out and without every kitchen utensil and pot and pan. But, as my hubby (who is in construction) says: For every job there is a tool :0) So, invest in good kitchen equipment as you go along in life. It will pay for itself a hundredfold - IF YOU COOK AT HOME. Good for you - cooking at home instead of eating out or doing the 'instant' route. I applaud you!
