Hello- the age old debate between husband and wife. We have a 5# chuck pot roast - it is BIG. We are having the boss's family over for dinner and need a perfect roast. Should we roast it whole - for how long or cut it in half and for how long? Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. Its he boss' family, right? Keep it whole, keep it impressive. I'd say a 3.5 to 4 hour braise and that puppy will be fork tender. With a nice braise, you can even do it ahead then warm for dinner.
