Recipe by Aimchick
I just recently was given a crock pot. I love it! I made this for dinner last night and it was melt in your mouth good! I used just a 3 pound roast, I am sure any kind of roast will work fine. I also made real gravy with the juice. When I made this, I used vermouth because thats what I had, but red wine, beer or even white wine would work just as well.
