Slow Cooker Tomato Balsamic Pot Roast

Pot roast is a great meal for a chilly winter evening and it basically cooks itself! The best part is you start it in the morning, go about your day and then dinner is basically ready in the evening. I threw in some fingerling potatoes and carrots to bulk up the meal and had a salad on the side. The next time you’re in the mood for pot roast, give this a try!

 

Quick tip: You might need to add some water to ensure the roast is submerged.
