I have never made pot roast (being a Brit this is not a standard food).
I have had some great potroasts here in the usa, particularly like it when it is almost caramelised and I like carrots and peas and lots of gravy.
Can you help me with your really tasty recipes please?
Here is a fantastic step-by-step basic preparation with wonderful photographs of each step. It should give a great walk-through for your first attempt!
If you want to include peas be sure to add them at the very last 10 - 20 minutes of cooking, otherwise they will be mushy!
