200 is also not particularly safe, either. 250 is rhe lowest you should go.

I cook pot roast at 300-325.

If it's tough, it's not cooked long enough.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

you want something quick and easy and works great with tough pot roast.....that's all my aunt could afford with two sets of twins..........she'd slice it up into small chunks and then add her favorite barbeque sauce to just cover it with a bit extra (just stir periodically so it doesn't burn...........I add just a small amount of sauteed chopped onions at the beginning though she never did and you just cook it for about 30-45 minutes dep. on how tough it is.....you might want to cut it with a bit of water.......then serve it over a soft bun.......serve with corn on the cob, a veggie to be healthy and/or some cut up fruit......... a few.chips or fries will make the kids happy

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

My beef hash is a little different. Grind up the beef, mix with small-diced boiled potatoes, small-diced raw onion. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat up a little butter/oil mixture in a frying pan. Put the hash in the hot pan and let it slowly brown and form a crust on the bottom. Flip it over and let the top brown in the same way.

Serve with poached or fried eggs on top, and some sort of toast on the side. Have ketchup handy.

Oh, man - I want some!
