Rosemary Pot Roast Recipe

Rosemary Pot Roast Recipe

Come home to a comforting, ready-to-eat entree with this slow-cooker favorite of Marcia Schroeder. A neighbor in River Edge, New Jersey originally shared the recipe. “It’s so easy and fills the house with a wonderful aroma,“ Marcia says. “I’ve served it often…guests always want the recipe.“ TIP: Mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli with lemon butter make this a hearty meal for two. Also, leftovers are so tender and tasty, you just might want to double this recipe to serve over noodles or in sandwiches the next day.
