My wife picked up a 4lb chuck roast this week on sale for 2.50 a pound. That's the sale price. Some bargain for chuck...
It will make a great Sunday dinner. I have it in the pressure cooker now. I also have dough rising for some nice dinner rolls. Mashed potatoes and corn on the cob on the side.
The gravy with the pot roast has loads of sliced onions, horseradish and peppercorns. Should go well over the mashed potatoes and rolls.

I picked up a 2 lb'er Friday - but did a stew.
cut out the gristle, connective junk, etc and cubed it 3/4-1"
heavy brown in a dutch oven, remove meat, sweat/saute to soften a bit & absorb the fat/flavor from the meat:
2 turnips peeled & diced
2 parsnips peeled & diced
4 leeks (smallish) - 1/4 inch round slices
handful of cremini - sliced
3 stalk celery chopped
handful diced green pepper
salt/pepper, bay leaves(3)
splash of Worcheshire sauce
then add back meat &
water to half depth.
gentle simmer covered for 3 hrs -
about 2 hour in I added some more water as the level when down - evaporation or absorption..
everything got nice & soft
it was my intent to put in some potato - but the pot was too full.
I was preparing to hear ungood comments but in fact it got rave reviews and even after I pointed out the 'no tater' problem I was directed to write it down for repeats..... the leeks were a big seller.....
