The Best Pot Roast Ever

READY IN: 24mins
Recipe by Cinny 2

By cooking this roast in its own juices, rather than with canned stock or water, it is full of flavor and falls apart! It took years to perfect this recipe, my own creation, but well worth it. The butter adds a real creaminess to this dish, and the seasonings give it that extra kick!

Look no further for a good roast recipe. This one tastes better than Grandma used to make. Very simple recipe as well.
