Growing up my mom had Sunday Roast every week, a tradition she carried on when she had a family of her own. Although we don’t have a roast every Sunday we do fit it in about two or three times a month. A few years ago when our oven was on the fritz we had to get creative about how we could make our roast. After searching Pinterest I found a Crock-Pot recipe which seemed simple enough and had great reviews. After the first bite we never even considered making our roast the old way ever again. This new recipe was so packed with flavor and left the meat juicy and tender, it was absolute perfection.
