Slow Cooker Easy Pot Roast With Rich Tomato Gravy

"This recipe is just so good. The roast comes out nice a tender with great gravy. I got this recipe from the 150 best slow cooker recipes, by Judith Finlayson. I have made 3 things out of this book at the time being and every thing is very good. I will post more as I come by my favs. REMEMBER: That you should know your slow cooker. Slow cookers vary in cooking speed, hence the reason why there is a gap in cooking time. Enjoy."

    I have made this meal many times over the past 4 years, the only thing I change is I omit the potatoes and make mashed potatoes because the gravy this recipe produces is so amazing it has to be put all over mashed potatoes! This is the best thing I have ever made in a crock pot, I got my first one in 1974!

    Absolutely the best! Thank you for posting this great recipe. I made it exactly as written and it was the most awsome Pot Roast I have ever made.

    Great recipe -- one or two changes, though. I used tomato sauce instead of tomato soup, and added a 1/2 of a small can of tomato paste. It made for a richer gravy and I agree that it made the whole house smell like dinner all day long

    This was fabulous....I had a roast that was under 3 pounds and I cut in half so mine was done in 5 hours on low...but it was wonderful...I added the balsamic vinagar and brown sugar and I think it is a must...wonderful taste...will make again and again over a long long winter...
