The Best Pot Roast

Pot roast is one of life's greatest comfort foods. It’s warm and hearty, and while you may pull out your Dutch oven and add it to your meal plan more during the cold-weather months, there’s really no reason it can’t be a go-to summer meal — just plug in your slow cooker! You’ll get the same mouthwatering meal without heating up your kitchen. The secret to a flavorful pot roast is browning the meat and onions before roasting, which adds a rich, meaty flavor and caramelized sweetness; that’s exactly what Food Network Kitchen did in this easy recipe. Simmering the sauce to reduce a little will concentrate the flavors and create a velvety texture. If you’re craving a fall-apart-tender roast and delicious vegetables, this recipe is a great place to start.
