CROCKPOT ITALIAN POT ROAST

I am a slow-cooker fanatic but I have run into some crockpot recipes that just do not work, but not so with this HEALTHY & DELICIOUS Italian Pot Roast recipes from Weight Watchers One Pot Cookbook. I picked this cookbook up not because of Weight Watcher but rather the “one pot” was intriguing & the layout in the book makes life so simple as the categories are listed by type of baking dish … aka casserole dish, slow cooker, sauce pan, roasting pan, etc. This really makes it easy to find a dish to make depending on what you feel like cooking with.

I decided to try to “Italian Pot Roast” in the slow cooker and I must admit this recipe is so good we never have leftovers! One word of advice, use a 3 quart slow cooker on this one & not your 6 quart unless you plan to more than double the recipe, you really don’t want too much surface area on this one or it burns and I would also suggest skipping the High for 4-5 hours & go for the Low & Slow for about 8 hours, it really tenderizes the meat & will melt in your mouth! Also I add a ½ cup of red wine to this recipe to really break down the meat but you can leave it out … I have tried it both ways & it tastes great either way!!
