Tangy Slow Cooker Pot Roast


I have two versions of this slow cooker pot roast recipe because I crave variety. So when I find a recipe that sort of becomes one of my go-to staples, I like to  tweak it up a bit to create a variation so that we don’t tire of eating the exact thing too often.  Scroll further down the page to see the second version of this recipe.  If you want my all time favorite pot roast recipe click here for it.  “Its the BEST”, as my mom used to say.

l make pot roast in my slow cooker fairly often because its true comfort food. And I love the ease of just throwing everything in the slow cooker and letting it take care of the rest for me. Not to mention the pull-apart, melt-in-your-mouth tenderness you get when you cook your roast in a slow cooker (if you don’t have a slow cooker, you don’t know what you’ve been missing!).  – scroll further down the page for the second version.
