Zesty Italian-Style Crock Pot Roast

READY IN: 7hrs 10mins
Recipe by Chef shapeweaver �

I was getting tired of the same old pot roast and I had some onion soup mix, and Italian herbs. So I started to play and I came up with this. If you try this I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to cut back on some of the herbs and spices if you like. I put this on the shortest time, as crock pot times vary. Posted on September 14th 2005.

We reduced the amount of cayenne to 1/8 teaspoon (don't do spicy very well) and added 1/4 cup of red wine (just for moisture). This turned out very tender. We didn't need all 8 hours for the meat to be done...ours was done in about 6 in our slow cooker.
