Let me preface this by saying that I am NOT a fan of pot roast - at all! Hubby is tho, so I gave this a try and was blown away by how good it was!! I didn't make any changes except I did add about a TBL of W.shire sauce (probably didn't make a difference). I did brown the roast and then put it in the slow cooker and poured the sauce over it. Set it on low and let it go for 8 hrs. It did worry me when DH came home and said "mmm smells like spaghetti" but it definitely did not taste like it. It came out perfect! The sauce was not too sweet at all and had a nice tang to it - almost sweet/sour but not quite. Dh made an open face sandwich the next day for lunch and loved it. This will definitely be made and shared again!
UPDATED: I have made this several times now and have landed on my fav. modifications. 1)Heat 2 TBL oil in dutch oven and while it's heating, add 3 or 4 whole, peeled cloves of garlic. Remove when they start to brown This replaces the garlic salt. 2)Salt, pepper and flour the roast before browning. Remove meat and place in crockpot. I omitted the rest of the salt. 3) De-glaze dutch oven with about 1/3 cup good red wine making sure to scrap up the bits on the bottom. Pour over the meat. 4) In the same dutch oven, mix your tomatoes, spag. sauce seasoning, cola and veggies. Pour over meat and set crockpot on low for about 7 hours or high for about 5. 5) During last hour, add baby carrots and new potatoes if desired.
This is now a fav of our family!!
