Expert Tips

  • Chuck roast typically comes in pieces that are about 1 1/2 inches thick. If your chuck roast is thicker than that, you may have to adjust your cooking time, as thicker pieces take longer to cook.
  • We used small potatoes in this recipe that were about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. If your potatoes are larger, just cut them into quarters.
