Slow-Cooker Pot Roast with Tomatoes, Balsamic and Garlic

Blogger Beth Dooley from Seasonal Appetites shares a favorite recipe. Here’s a dinner that cooks by itself. Don’t skimp on the garlic, it mellows through the long slow cooking time; the vinegar adds a nice tang. Serve this with mashed potatoes or over broad noodles. Leftovers taste even better!
