Set It And Forget It Summer Time Pot Roast

Whenever I make this, I try and use the biggest pot roast that we can afford to buy that week, and that will fit in the roaster. Mainly because there is so much that can be done with the leftover meat. One of my favorite things is using the gravy and mixing it in with some pasta and the leftover roast. It makes an excellent beef and noodles that even picky little ones like. It’s so simple too. It can be done on the stove top in just a few minutes. Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at Group Recipes:
