I had weird eating habits as a kid. I hated pot roast and mashed potatoes. I loved canned sardines on crackers. True story, I would fight my Dad for the last one. Thankfully things have changed a bit (I still love sardines just not from a can) and I have rediscovered the comfort and goodness of a slow cooked pot roast with potatoes. Not only is it delicious and hearty, it is incredibly easy and super affordable since it uses cheaper cuts of chuck roast. This meal is perfect for a holiday meal or Sunday supper but simple enough you could make it any night of the week.
