Slow Cooker: Heather's Favorite Pot Roast

This week Alaina and I will both be sharing our favorite slow cooker pot roast recipe. A good pot roast is one of the most delicious comfort foods there is and can be very simple to make. Pair it with mashed potatoes, a steamed green veg or salad, and you have a hard-to-beat meal. This recipe is one that I found soon after I was married and have used without fail ever since.

3 lb. roast
¼ tsp. pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
¼ c. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. dry mustard

Rub pepper and garlic into roast. Place roast into crockpot. Make several shallow slits in top of roast. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over meat. Cover; cook on low 8-10 hours or on high 4-5 hours.

NOTE: Sometimes I add a few peeled carrots in with the roast.
