Tina's Pot Roast Recipe

Publisher Photo
This tender pot roast is a hearty, "feel good" meal, so I decided it was a good one to share with Michelle's family. It's also kid-friendly. Even picky eaters usually gobble it up. The last time I made this for my family, the gravy was so tasty that we poured it over the entire meal—meat, carrots, and potatoes!—Tina Meyer, Lake Orion, Michigan

This is a favorite in our house. I make alittle more gravy than called for, less potatoes and add Parsnips. My kids love it, it is a once a month staple here.

GREAT! Even my picky7 and 3 year old ate it. The 3 year old had three helpings. Makes a great gravy, and the veggies came out tender and flavorful.
