Spicy Garlic Pot Roast in the Slow Cooker

Lately, things seem to be getting a bit boring in our kitchen. We’ve settled into a routine of cooking a lot of the same meals because they’re good, easy and cheap. But it does get, well…boring.

To try to break out of a rut, my wife found this recipe, and thought it was just what we needed to shake it up. Now, I don’t want the title to turn you off, or to set your expectations too high. When I say spicy, I don’t mean hot. It’s has a little kick, but is mostly tangy and a little sharp. It’s really, really good. This has some great garlic flavor, and would be fantastic piled high on a sandwich, served over butter noodles or rice, or even on top of a pizza.

This totally surprised me, but I think it’ll be added to the weekly menu!
