When I think of comfort food, a tender pot roast is definitely one dish that comes to mind. There are many variations of preparing a pot roast but I wanted to use a method that wouldn’t require you to go out and buy a Dutch oven or slow cooker just to make it. You can use a regular large baking dish for this and it will turn out just as delicious! Because of the cook time, this is a great Sunday meal or family gathering meal. As always , enjoy and let me know how it turns out !
