really tender pot roast for radiation patient

Vetter | Feb 4, 2008 02:11 PM

My stepfather is two months past having major surgery for cancer, and now he's having radiation done on his lung stem. So he feels rotten, his tastebuds are nearly all killed from the day long dose of surgery anesthesia, and now his throat is starting to hurt from the highly targeted radiation. He's lost 9 pounds in a week. And suddenly, he has a craving for pot roast!!! This is his first major craving since surgery and unfortunately, it's starting to get difficult for him to eat. I'm going to visit he and my mother in their temporary housing, and my mother requested a REALLY tender pot roast for him.

Help me make this lovely man a meltingly tender pot roast, please. I'd really, really appreciate your tips.
