My Ben grew up eating pot roast and even though I know that I won't ever be able to replicate his mom's pot roast - I thought I would tackle my own recipe. Maybe it was we both grew up in the mid-west but pot roast seemed to be a staple in my home as well. My mom made the most flavorful and tender pot roast - just another one of those things that I didn't appreciate as a kid.
I don't make pot roast very often but if I would have known how easy it was - I think I would have made it a lot more often. I used a slow cooker to make my simple pot roast. It turned out super tender - like fall apart tender - and really delicious. It was a perfect Sunday afternoon lunch that smelled amazing when we walked in the door after church.
Pull roast apart with a fork.
Ben and I loved this pot roast - our sweet girl - not so much. (Pretty sure it's because she didn't have the privilege of growing up in the mid-west.) It was super easy and really tender and flavorful. Not quite up to the standard of my mom's pot roast but not bad for a Southern transplant.
