  1. Roast had always been a family favorite. I was so happy when I discovered how to cook it in the crock pot about 10years ago. Sure makes it easier for Sunday lunch.

  2. Oh we love roast!!! I have never put anything besides salt and pepper in mine. I have tried to find the envelope dry onion mix and I can't! Where would it be in Wal-Mart?

  3. This is my favorite way to make Pot Roast. Yummy!

  4. This really reminds me of my mom - our Sunday lunches were one of the highlights of the week! And her roasts...the best! I just LOVE the crock pot:)
