This is my perfect pot roast recipe. My mother will be ecstatic that I am putting it up on the internet. My sister claims it’s the best roast she’s ever had. WINNER!
This recipe does not make a huge amount of roast. If you have a large family or would like a ton of leftovers, use a bigger roast and double the ingredients. I use a 1.5lb roast so that it fits in my small crock pot and I’m not stuck eating it for days on end, which I definitely could =]
