The Secret Ingredient To Elevate Your Pot Roast
Pot roast is a great comfort food as it is, but dill pickles add a zesty flavor and crunchy texture that can transform a one-note roast into a nuanced culinary experience.
Dill pickles bring a brininess to a pot roast recipe, which contrasts well with the rich and tender meat. To get started, you’ll want to choose the perfect cut of beef.
The best options are chuck roast, brisket, and bottom-round roast, but the idea is to find something well-marbled and full of connective tissue which breaks down to add flavor.
After finding a cut of beef, season it with salt and pepper and sear it until a rich brown crust develops. Next, remove the beef, add in dill pickles, and brine to your preference.
Once brining is done, add back in your beef, cover the pot, and place it in a low-temperature oven to braise in all that pickle goodness over the course of several hours.
