There are certain dishes that just the thought of brings you right back to childhood, pot roast is one of those dishes. There was always such a rich and distinct flavor from my moms pot roast. Its a simple, rustic, one pot meal that is perfect on a cold day. Oh, and you’ve got to make sure to have a nice crusty bread to soak up the incredible sauce because honestly, this sauce is what makes this so special to me. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
