Tomato Herb Pot Roast

Now that the cold weather has hit, I’m in the mood for comfort food constantly. I want something homemade, warm, filling and delicious. This recipe, fits the bill. The best part of it is, you can have a gourmet dinner via the crock pot, on a weekday! To make it an extra special meal, pair with your favorite Cabernet or Pinot Noir.

I made a side of brown rice, to go with this meal!

Happy Cooking!
