Sunday Pot Roast

Dave T.


This came about in my search for another recipe that I had lost some time back. The broth is not strong and over powering, it's more lite and tomato like. This makes a wonderful Sunday pot roast for first timers or for teens learning to cook, it's just an easy, simple, fool proof way to cook a pot roast that will always come out perfect, tender and OMG good. Pair it with cornbread and WV style cole slaw and you have a wonderful Sunday dinner, and clean up is a snap, just pull the bag out and toss it away when your finished!! Hope you enjoy.
