when pot roast goes horribly wrong....

jessi20 | Sep 26, 2007 05:46 AM

I made pot roast last night and it was bad.....really, really bad. I can't understand it. I have a no fail recipe I have been using all my adult life. My family loves it. there are never leftovers.
I believe the culprit is round roast. I bought an extremely giant whole round that was to good of a deal to pass up on. I cut it into four roasts......froze the other three and made a pot roast last night. It was so dry and disgusting that I could not serve it. It breaks into a dry sawdust when you try to slice it. A pot roast.....dry? I have a roast uneaten sitting in my fridge that I have no idea how to try and salvage it. I hate wasting food and can't bear to throw it away. I was thinking maybe I could try to break it up into really small peices and mix it with a gravy for shepherds pie, however I am concerned that it will be more of a saw dust pie. Any ideas?

Also..........I am not attempting a pot roast with the rest of the meat. What can I do with the rest of the meat I have frozen? I have about 10-12 pounds still in the freezer.
