Top round roast question

I love pot roast and usually use chuck roast. Can I use a top round roast for pot roast as well? Will it turn out ok and how long should I plan on cooking it? They have them at my local store buy one get one for a penny!

  1. Yes, you can use it for pot roast. I did a 4# one not long ago. After browning, it took 5 hours of slow stovetop braising before it got fork tender, but it was worth the wait.
