Dave's Favorite Crock Pot Roast & Gravy

READY IN: 6hrs 5mins
Recipe by knobbyknee

This is my husbands favorite roast recipe. It turns out perfect every time with the best gravy. It is so good with the traditional roast veggies, potatoes (mashed or roasted) and carrots. From the Favorites cookbook.

This was very good. I think next time I will cut the brown sugar in half as it was a little sweet for my tastes.
