Barbecue Style Beef Pot Roast

To enjoy as a speedy weeknight dinner recipe, use the Make Ahead Plan: Cook beef pot roast and refrigerate overnight in the sauce it was cooked in. Next day, skim any fat from sauce and thinly slice roast crosswise; place slices of meat in an ovenproof casserole. Heat sauce and pour over meat. Cover with foil or casserole lid; heat in 350°F (180°C) oven for about 25 minutes.
