Dinner Tonight: Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Who doesn’t love a good pot roast recipe?  You simply throw it in the slow cooker early in the day and let it go.  I added some baked sweet potatoes to mine and voila…the world’s easiest meat and potatoes supper was born.  
I found this little gem of a recipe in my Slow Cooking Year ‘Round book…and it really is a winner.
This recipe serves 4 adults with a little left over for lunch the next day.
