Roast with an Onion-and-Mushroom Gravy


I’m trying my best not to let the perfectionist in me keep from sharing some of my favorite recipes. I hate that this is the best picture I took, but honestly all I wanted to do was eat by the time this meal was ready. This is another one of my favorite slow cooker meals. Roast are commonly made as the perfect Sunday dinner, but with the convenience of the slow cooker it can also be a meal you can enjoy during the week. The meat has always come out juicy and tender and  the mushroom gravy is the perfect addition for pouring over the meat. I rarely look forward to leftovers, but this meal is one that I can’t wait to eat for lunch the next day!
