This Crockpot Pot Roast Recipe is my go to recipe when making pot roast. It is a recipe that is embedded in my memory and I do not have to look anything up and most of the time I have all the ingredients on hand. Some people always ask why I place butter on top of my meats when I cook them. Well adding butter helps tenderize the meat and give it good flavor. It is just my personal preference so if you want to skip on the butter you certainly can.
I have been making this recipe a long time, even before I met my husband. I love how easy it is to make and that it makes a complete crockpot dinner for my family. I like to serve Sugar Cornbread with the Crockpot Pot Roast Recipe which makes my family very happy. Be sure to try this Pot Roast slow cooker recipe soon, you will not be disappointed!
