Easy Sunday Pot Roast

Pot roast is a simple, delicious and easy dinner to make. Using an inexpensive cut of meat and slowly cooking it for hours turns it into¬†a tender and mouthwatering roast. I grew up eating a¬†variation my mom made with root vegetables like rutabaga and parsnips, and then my mother-in-law made a variation with potatoes and carrots simple but delicious! Over the years I have made my own version of pot roast and after a lot of experimenting with different seasonings and herbs this has turned out to be my family’s favorite pot roast recipe!

Season all sides of the roast with the steak seasoning and place into the crock-pot. Place the rosemary
sprigs and garlic cloves on top of the roast. Pour the wine into the crock-pot and cover. Turn the crock-
pot on high and after 2 hours remove the rosemary and garlic and set aside then flip the roast over and
place rosemary and garlic back on the roast. Now add the potatoes, carrots, and onions to the crock-pot
and season with a little salt and pepper and cover. After 3 hours add the mushrooms and half of the can
of soup and cover to cook 1 more hour. Pot roast is done when meat falls apart easily with a fork. In my
crock-pot it was done in 6 hours on high heat.
