Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Pot Roast has been filling American families since way before both two salaries were needed to put it on the table. It was never very difficult to cook but the most frequent complaint about the dish … “too dry”. Well, this recipe attacks that problem two ways. First, we sear in the flavors of our big beautiful cheap-ass chuck roast and secondly we cook it long and slow in a sealed environment. Now the juices may still wish to leave but I mean what is the point!?? Put this one on Low for 8 or so hours or high for about 6 and you will delighted when you come home.
