My Slow Cooker Pot Roast is fork tender, with hearty vegetables. This Slow Cooker Pot Roast is simple and just like grandma used to make. It will bring back all the memories of Sunday dinners with your family as a child. Pot Roast has always been my favorite comfort food.
When I was growing up on Sundays we would visit my grandmother’s house and she always made pot roast, mashed potatoes, and fresh green beans or collard greens. It became a tradition and even now that I’m grown with my own family I can’t help but crave that Sunday pot roast dinner.
Even though I put potatoes in my pot roast recipe I still feel like I need to serve them with mashed potatoes. There is just something comforting about a huge bowl of creamy, steamy mashed potatoes, topped with a little gravy from this pot roast makes it delicious combination.
This Crockpot pot roast is perfect for a busy day when you need to have dinner ready when you get home from a long day of work, church or sports.
I hope that this simple recipe helps you make memories with your family and friends.
