Savory Slow Cooker Beef Roast

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Parsley

Very easy and good. Add tators and carrots if you like. I usually serve this with mashed potatoes or noodles.

I followed the recipe as written. This was good but we didn't think it had much flavor to it. My family ended up putting barbecue sauce on it to eat it. There is nothing wrong with this recipe, it just didn't have enough flavor for us.
