This crock pot pot roast practically cooks itself. Simply sear the meat and add it with all the ingredients into the slow cooker. The meat will cook very slowly and turn out extremely tender and super flavorful.
We will be cooking this pot roast in beef broth and red wine for added flavor. We are also adding carrots, celery and potatoes which will make it a complete meal.
You can serve this with polenta or mashed potatoes to sop up the delicious gravy.
