Fill the kitchen with the aroma of a beautifully browned pot roast braising its way to deliciousness in the oven. Pot roast recipes, a traditional winter favorite, using tougher cuts of beef and inexpensive root veggies, make great budget dinners. Another bonus? Many pot roast dishes are slow-cooker recipes—so if you like, you can use the oven for still more family pleasers, from roasted butternut squash, green bean casseroles and cheesy potatoes to baked sweet potato recipes. Or...maybe a pie?
