    YankeeMom. . .your recipe for pot roast sounded REALLY good! I will have to try it.

    One of my favorite ways to cook a pot roast is in the crockpot. I drop the roast in the crockpot and pour 1/2 of a large bottle of Lime Salsa (Walmart brand) over it and let it cook all day. The salsa makes a spicy sauce with the roast juices and the spicy taste goes all through the pot roast. Everyone who has tried it loves it. I save the remaining 1/2 bottle of salsa for the next roast.

    I made this recipe last week and it was delicious. I did add a half bag of frozen diced onions to the crockpot also (I know that frozen onions are not very frugal but they are so easy to use ). I loved it and the leftovers made a great french dip the next day, I just thinned down the leftover gravy with a little beef broth and it was perfect for dipping sandwiches in.

    I think this is also found on Recipezaar -- I've tried a To Die For Pot Roast from there ... and it was delicious.

    Umm, thanks Heather. This sounds like a winner. I always cook my roasts in the crockpot. I brown my roast on both sides before adding to the crock and then add a can of Cream of Mushroom Soup, a packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix, soup can of water, potatoes, onions, carrots and extra mushrooms if they are on sale. It also makes a really good gravy to serve over rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.

    I love a good roast beef sandwich on a toasted bun with mayo and mustard. We also love any leftover gravy served over hot, split biscuits.
