Dredge pot roast in flour. Discard excess flour. Heat olive oil in large oven-proof frying pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot. Brown pot roast in hot oil, about 5 minutes per side. Remove pot roast from frying pan.

Combine water and vinegar. Add vinegar mixture to frying pan; cook over medium heat scraping up brown beef bits. Stir in salt. Return pot roast to frying pan; sprinkle with pepper, as desired.
