Give yourself a head start with dinner and use a slow cooker to create your next meal. With only three ingredients that cook while you relax, this pot roast recipe couldn’t be any simpler to prepare and make.

Terrific Tips:  If not using a slow cooker, you can bake in the oven at 325°F. about 4 hours or until tender.  To cook safely, make sure your slow cooker is filled at least half full, but no more than 2/3 full. In addition, don’t confuse Chili Sauce (found by mayo and dressings section of grocery) with Asian “hot” chili sauce or you’ll have a very spicy recipe. Season roast the day before and refrigerate, if time permitted.
