Spice-Braised Pot Roast

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 7 hours

Makes

8 servings

Just pour these ingredients over your pot roast and let the slow cooker do the work. Herbs and spices give the beef an excellent taste. I often serve this roast over noodles or with mashed potatoes, using the juices as a gravy. —Loren Martin, Big Cabin, Oklahoma
