3 Hour Old Fashioned Oven Pot Roast

For today’s post, we have an Oven Pot Roast recipe. Now, this is quite a victory for me because I have NEVER made pot roast before. I was really nervous about trying something new especially when I want ed to make it for our date night dinner. I did some research & luckily I found this recipe from Food.com. Brian really enjoyed this recipe & even said that it’s one of his favorites 🙂 —-> Happy wifey!!!
