Arm Roast - Very tender and flavorful roast

Crock Pot - Best prepared in the crock-pot with minimal seasonings.  Sear in iron skillet on all sides first.  When using the crock-pot for roast, only a small amount of water is needed to cover the bottom of the pot.  Salt and pepper roast to taste.  The juices and flavor of the beef come out so well while slow cooking.  Add vegetables to broth in the last hour of cooking.  If needed add water to cover the vegetables around the sides of the roast.  A Grass-fed roast is the most tender if cooked for 5-6 hours on low in the crock-pot.

Grill - When cut into thick strips, this roast serves as a great cut of beef for grilling.
