Pot roast is a braised beef dish. Pot roast is typically made by browning a roast-sized piece of beef to induce a Maillard reaction, then slow-cooking in or over liquid in a covered dish.

Tougher cuts such as chuck steak, Boneless chuck roast, and 7-bone pot roast are popular joints of this technique. While they are unsuitable for oven roasting due to the toughness of the fibers, they become tender and flavorsome after slow braising. As with all braises, slow cooking tenderizes, while the liquid exchanges its flavor with that of the beef, resulting in tender, succulent meat.

Pot roast in North America is often served with carrots and/or potatoes as well as other vegetables such as onions simmered in the cooking liquid.

Sauerbraten is a popular variety of pot roast in Germany.
