I can't believe I'd never made a pot roast before....we had it a lot when i lived at home with my folks. Mom had a recipe where you added meat, veggies and the cooking liquid to a plastic bag and put it in the microwave. Unconventional, I know, but it was delicious. She always served it with buttered noodles, peas and carrots. Mmmmmmm childhood. :)
This was a McCormick recipe, and a simple one at that. Veggies, meat, water and spice packet, then "set n forget" on low for eight hours! I love dinners that kind of take care of themselves like magic. The meat was fork-tender, and there's plenty of leftovers. Add my mom's roasted beets plus biscuits on the side and you've got a pretty good way to end a weekend.
