Black Pepper Pot Roast MMB

Melanie B


I wanted to make a pot roast in the crock pot and I usually make Country Pot Roast By Freda
But I am trying to stay away from most packaged foods, so this is what I came up with and I LOVE it.
Add more or less of any ingredient. I just added a couple shakes of this and some grinds of that. LOL
