Tina's Pot Roast
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
