Hubs just loves pot roast. If we are at a restaurant and it is on the menu, he will order it.

I always thought it was so complicated to make and would be dried out. This recipe is far from being complicated and the meat is moist and tender.



The great thing is you can use your slow cooker and set it and forget it. Just wait until your family walks through the door, your house smells so great!


For this recipe you don’t want a very expensive cut of meat, let your slow cooker do all the work. Cooking it slowly breaks down the meat and makes it fall apart and juicy. I chose a Chuck Roast, it was on sale. But you can choose your favorite cut of meat.




Add veggies in the last 1 1/2 hours of cooking the pot roast. Serve over mashed potatoes.
