Crockpot Pot Roast


Making a pot roast can be one of the biggest kitchen challenges – an undercooked roast will be chewy while an overcooked roast will be dry. For a succulent, melt-in-your-mouth roast every time, the secret is simple: patience. Seared on the stove then cooked low and slow among herbs and veggies, this incredibly flavorful pot roast is super simple to prep. Toss everything together, go about your day and come home to the welcoming aroma of dinner ready and waiting.
