I start my pot roast in a heavy pot on the stove top then pop it into the oven to cook slowly. It cooks more evenly and requires less monitoring in the oven.

Can you still get them with the bone in? I have been looking and looking down here and cannot find them. I asked the meat guys at 2 different stores and they said they cannot order them at all.

Andy I went to the butcher and ordered a chuck roast (he said a seven bone roast is the best) is this what you meant when you said bone in???

Yup, that's fine. The chuck steak is usually smaller than a boneless roast. How many do you plan to feed?

How do you plan to cook 10 for a meal?

Pot roast = chuck roast to me!

I brown my pot roast on all sides in a little olive oil, then put in 10-20 cloves of garlic, some herbes de Provence, salt and pepper. Pour in one bottle of beer (dark beer is my favorite) put the lid on and put into a 250 oven for 6 hours or until it falls apart. The garlic mellows with the long cooking, and even garlic haters will like this.

Defat and thicken some of the liquid for gravy. Save some of it to cook mushrooms and barley or brown rice in for another meal. Or serve the roast "soupy" with lots of crusty bread to sop up the juices with.

I plan on doing them with all root veggies, red wine, and i've already made a beef stock. I've gone to the farmers market today and bought the most beautiful vegetables.

Also I have access to four more ovens so I will be able to have them all ready at the same time...

P.S. I also bought a pair of roller skates!!!

The 7 bone steak is a smaller piece of meat than a boneless chuck roast. You could feed the same group with half as many roasts (roughly).
