Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Mmm!  Comfort food makes you feel good inside.  Pot roast is one of those foods.  As I was coming up with this week’s menu, I decided pot roast should be one of our dinners.  The interesting thing was we had a pot roast for our dinner at my in-law’s last night.  The difference was how we prepared the roast.  The side dishes were different also.

I’ve made this recipe for over 10 years.  It is super easy and delicious.  After we have a roast for dinner, another night during the week, I make a hash (minus eggs) with the leftover roast.  Yum!

Even though I like making baked potatoes cooked in the slow cooker, I’m not a fan of potatoes cooked with roast.  We had buttered noodles with our roast.
