DASH Diet Pot Roast,Related Articles

For me pot roast is one of those amazing comfort foods. Slow-cooked for hours to perfection with a lot of succulent vegetables. The meat just shreds with a fork it is so tender and then there is the rich brown gravy.

Now for me, I also like to make a small side of mash potatoes. I scoop of mash potatoes with the pot roast served on top. This makes a great family dinner and you will have great leftovers the next day. The great thing is you can put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and go about your day. And then later return to an amazing meal.
