Pot Roast with Potatoes
I’ve been making this recipe for so many years, I really love it. Whenever I make it I get so many compliments and people think I’ve slaved away at it when I really haven’t.
It takes me a few minutes to prepare and the stove does the rest.
If you love tender potatoes then this is the dish for you. The potatoes are delicious and coated in a wonderful sauce. Not to mention the meat, which is incredible.
