Pot roast is one of my favorite dinners. Nothing is more comforting and delicious than a nice, juicy, falling-apart pot roast, mashed potatoes, veggies, and a thick beef roast gravy to end the day. My boyfriend didn't like pot roast before he met me, and now? Well, let's just say this little number gets him asking me to make it all the time. ;)

Just a note: If you like more of a marsala taste, add the wine a little later on in the cooking process. :)
