The Chuck Pot Roast is cut from the forequarter of the cow. This area consists of are heavily exercised, well-developed muscles. Because this set of muscles is more exercised, it needs to be braised to be tenderized. Braising involves cooking with moist heat to tenderize and soften the meat. But don’t let that little bit of extra work deter you: our Chuck Pot Roast can become one of the most tender cuts if prepared properly. When properly cooked, the Chuck provides juicy, moist, melting tenderness in every single bite.
