Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you have a large enough slow cooker, buy a big roast or 2 smaller ones and make several other meals for the rest of the week or freeze and save for later! The slow cooker is on so why not fill it with yummy food?
  • Use 2 teaspoons dried thyme in place of fresh, if preferred.
  • Partner Tip
  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Great recipe and tased fantastic.

Succulent, fall off the bone good. Very easy to make. Thank you!

I skipped the veg broth because I didn’t have any, was still delicious! Fall-apart tender and made awesome sandwiches all week. (The sandwiches were even better with a little bbq sauce.)

Not much flavor to the dish. It was good with added condiments
