How do you keep a roast from burning?

Chef's answer
For a lightly burnt roast, try adding a piece of white bread into the cooking pot. Place the bread directly on top of the roast beef, add the lid, and let sit for ten minutes. The method works because the bread absorbs the burnt taste and scent. You can also try adding a teaspoon of peanut butter to the cooking liquid..
