Cross Rib Pot Roast & Veggies

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by Bergy

Wonderful flavored pot roast or you may use a crock pot. You could add potatoes to make this a complete meal in one pot. Add potatoes for the last 45 minutes of cooking time in the Dutch Oven . If you are using a crock pot allow5 1/2 hours on low put your veggies (including potatoes) on the bottom of the crock pot put roast on top, turn roast after 3 hours and baste with sauce. I prefer doing this recipe in a Dutch oven .

I have made this twice and it turned out wonderful both times. I might suggest fresh rosemary because the dried herbs tend to get harder when cooking at 450.
