Pot roast with sweet potatoes

Pot roast isn't very exciting.  However, it can be scrumptious, comforting, and super EASY.  This one delivered on all fronts. Rating 7/10.

  • 3-4 lb chuck roast
  • PAM
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup of low sodium beef broth
  • 3 ribs of celery
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
Prepare your veggies by cutting each sweet potato into four pieces.  Dice onions and celery.  Place veggies in crock pot.
Spray a frying pan with PAM and brown the roast on each side.
Place roast on top of veggies.
Combine the beef broth, cinnamon, and pepper and pour into the crock pot.
Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

It might not be "trendy" or "sexy" but a well executed pot roast is some of the ultimate comfort food.
