Crock-Pot Grandma’s Pot Roast

I grew up with my grandmother living in the house. We were not wealthy by any means. But, from time to time, grandma would cook a roast in her light green slow cooker that she would leave on the counter. She would start it in the morning, and by the 5 o’clock news, dinner was ready.

My sisters and I loved the roast for dinner. We also enjoyed the leftovers that some times we would make into a sandwich.

This recipe is what I remember my grandmother made. She always served the roast with a side of homemade mashed potatoes.
