AllRecipes.com is my favorite place to go for recipes because it has such vast array of them. It also has reviews from real people, which helps me know if it’s suited for my, uh, limited cooking skills.
I love crock pot recipes because you do a little bit of work in the morning, and by dinner time it’s good to go. Add that to the fact that roasts were on sale at Giant last week, and I had dinner plus a few day’s worth of leftovers.
This is my go-to recipe when I make pot roast. This is a good, basic, reliable pot roast recipe. It also lends itself well to fancying it up in the way you like. I added mushrooms the last time I made this, and I really want to get a good red wine so I can add a splash or two the next time. If you look in the comments, you’ll see some other suggestions for customizing your roast!
