    JillAZ's Note:

    This is a wonderful crock pot meal. I serve it with soft creamy polenta for a great meal. We usually just scoop the sauce right out of the crock without reducing. It tastes great either way. The browning of the meat and vegetable really adds a lot to the flavor. Don't skip this step! If you use regular bacon, you may need to drain off some of the fat before adding the tomato and wine. This came from a cookbook called Delicious & Dependable Slow Cooker Recipes. Enjoy!

      Mmmm Mmmmmm Good. This roast just hit the spot. I couldn't wait to try this a dinner. The house smelt great and I was getting hungrier and hungrier. This was a full flavored meal. I also didn't reduce the broth. I removed the roast from the crock pot and shredded it and then placed it back into the crock pot. Served it over curly noodles. I recommend this recipe. It is worth the time. Just a note, if you purchase a crock pot with a browning unit it saves time.
