Easy Slow-Cooker Pot Roast

I love this easy pot roast Crock-Pot recipe for a couple of reasons. First, it's delicious. Second, it's easy! I can't describe the feeling of walking into my house after work and smelling this dish that's been simmering in the slow cooker all day. There's nothing better. —James Schend, Taste of Home Deputy Editor
