Rating: We LOVED this recipe! I loved how I just threw everything in the slow cooker
and then it was ready and waiting for us when we got home from work.
This was a 10 out of a 10! My husband said he was thinking about it all day
and when we had it for dinner, he said it did not dissapoint!
Winner Winner Pot Roast dinner!!

I haven't made a pot roast in the crock pot in ages. I usually just add the meat and the envelope of lipton onion soup mix. I am going to give this recipe a try! Thanks for sharing!
