Dilled Pot Roast

It is hard to believe that this mouthwatering pot roast comes together so easily. Amy Lingren from Jacksonville, Florida relies on dill weed, cider vinegar and a simple sour cream sauce to flavor the entree.—Amy Lingren, Jacksonville, Florida

    Yum! Tender and the dill gives it a little bit of a twist of flavor. don't know if I liked the sour cream very much so I may leave that out next time.

    Very tender and made and excellent sauce. The only change I made was browning the meat before putting it in the crockpot.

    My husband made this for a Sunday dinner and we were surprised at how good it was. We've made it a couple times since then.
