Slow-Cooker Pot Roast with Root Vegetables

  • Servings: 8
  • Course: Main Dish

This so-easy slow-cooker pot roast goes together fast to simmer all day. The slow cooker liner makes after-dinner cleanup as easy as assembling the recipe. With the liner in place there's no need to scrub the slow cooker bowl when it's removed. Cool the slow cooker completely; remove the empty liner and discard. Wipe cooled slow cooker bowl with a clean, damp cloth or paper towel to easily clean up any dried on juices or spills.
