Expert Tips

  • Keeping the baby red potatoes whole helps to keep them from falling apart and getting mushy during the long cooking process.
  • Because slow cookers are sealed units that don’t allow for any liquid evaporation, it’s important to thoroughly drain the canned tomatoes to ensure the pot roast doesn’t become too watery.
