I know that this does not answer the exact question, however I sear the meat(I use a good size chuck roast), and then add 2-3 cups H2O, then peeled potatoes, carrots and sliced onion for the top of the roast. Then into the oven at 350 degrees for one and a half to two hours.,(depending on the size of the roast). This delivers a nice and juicy roast with nice roasted potatoes and carrots. Also rich broth to make into a gravy. A one pot dinner. Dont forget to season the roast before searing it. I use celery seed and roasted garlic salt.
