Slow Cooker Pot Roast & Gravy

Elaine Bovender


This is such an easy roast to do and it makes its own gravy! It's a wonderful main dish that's suitable for Sunday dinner, special occasion dinner guests, or just on weeknights for your special family. Just put it in the crock pot before you leave for work and when you get home, you'll have a wonderful meal prepared. Everyone who tastes this roast just raves about it and wants the recipe. My mother-in-law told me how to make this years ago, so I'm making it into a recipe to share with y'all. Enjoy!
