Recipe & Review: Pot Roast Ala Slow Cooker


I wanted to give you a review of what we made for dinner last night.
2 lb. pot roast,
Medium package of baby carrots
Campbell’s Slow Cooker sauces Tavern Style Pot Roast.
Just placed everything in the slow cooker on low for 7 hours.
The results were a tasty tender pot roast which was seasoned with the perfect combination of spices in Campbell’s sauce.
My husband, Dave agreed that we enjoyed the baby carrots seasoned with the sauce as much as the meat.
As a side dish we opened a can of green beans.
