Pot Roast in Foil

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by Barbs Miller

Easy pot roast that makes it's own gravy. To me, the gravy is the best part. This can also be done in a crock pot beautifully - great for the busy mom! Roast does cook down and is well done.

This is a fabulous recipe. Much better than how I was making roast boiling on the stove. My hubby had it reheated because of working late and he still thought it was delicious, will become a family favorite I am sure!!
