Re-braise a pot roast?

faile626 | Dec 26, 2008 06:33 AM

Hi all,

Can I re-braise an undercooked pot roast?

I cooked a 2.5 pound blade-cut chuck roast yesterday per Alton Brown's recipe:

After four hours of cooking, the edges of the roast were fork-tender, but the center of it still lacked that tear-apart consistency that I was hoping for. I know I just needed to keep on cooking it, but it was 7 PM, and we were getting hungry. We just tore from the outside.

Now, I'd like to get the center more tender, but I don't know another few hours in the oven will do to this cooked roast that's been sitting in the fridge all night.
