Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Malbec (Red Wine)

Alex Storm

"I love the convenience of the slow cooker but I do not care for the sodium content by using cream of mushroom soup etc. Sadly many of today's recipes call for the can of soup. I have tried many recipes over the years and adjusted them and this is the result. Please do use the wine, most of the alcohol dissipates with the cooking."

One of my families favorite "comfort food" recipes! We serve it with the sauce from the pan drippings, mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli. Delicious!

Will definitely make it again! It was perfect!

I added a little bit more wine as we like a lot of sauce. The next day, I used the juices and added flour to make more of a gravy and put it over rice.
