Description

You'll want to add this special-occasion roast to your repertoire. It's made in the slow cooker and frees up oven space for the rest of your dinner prep. Don't be tempted to skip browning the roast before adding it to the slow cooker; it adds deep flavor to the dish. Serve over creamy polenta or mashed potatoes to round out the meal. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.
