All American Beef Pot Roast In The Slow Cooker

Both of us are pretty busy on Sundays. Between Church and family obligations it’s hard to find the time to cook.

We still like to sit down for a nice Sunday dinner though.

Slow cookers make it possible for us to come home to a nice home-cooked meal at the end of a busy day. Get the breadmaker started in the morning or whip up a batch of biscuits when you get home and dinner is done. Or if you’re feeling ambitious, some roasted carrots go really well with this one pot slow cooker meal.
