I swear, slow cookers and roasts are made for each other!

There are so many varieties of flavors you can use and so many different veggies you can add. 

I especially love using slow cookers during the week, so I can relax and hang out with my family versus spending that extra time in the kitchen.

The recipe I adapted this from was found in a vintage cookbook I have called "Favorite Recipes of America: Meats". 

It's book 2 of a 5 part set, and they were released in the late 1960's. I love looking through them and discovering interesting vintage recipes!  

I've made SO many beef roasts in the slow cooker before, but this one has to be my absolute favorite.

The tomatoes bring such an amazing flavor to the juices, and the beef is fall apart tender. 

Serve with some bread or biscuits and you have a complete meal!

  4. I love my crock pot... Have never thought of using sugar when making roast and may give it a try the next time I make it. I made a roast last week in my crock pot but as we busy in the afternoon at work, I forgot to text my husband to add more liquid or turn it to warm and the roast was very, very done... stuck to the bottom done as it had been cooking for 12+ hours. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday.

    1. I've never thought of sugar before either! It's helps brown the roast so nicely! Thanks so much for hosting Marlys!!

  5. Roast been is almost the only thing I ever make in the crock pot, mostly because that's just what I'm comfortable with. :) I'll have to jazz things up and try out your recipe! I would love to have you stop by 'Or so she says...' to share your great ideas at the link party, going on right now (and every weekend.) I hope to see you there! www.oneshetwoshe.com
