I work full time, so this pot roast from a slow cooker is my go-to when I want a hearty, home cooked meal. It’s a comfort to walk in and smell this simmering roast that I know will be fall-apart tender and delicious. —Gina Jackson, Ogdensburg, New York

"very easy recipe and tender beef. The only change I made was to add carrots. Next time I would omit some of the garlic, it became a bit too much once cooked down into the gravy."
