Slow Cooker BBQ Pot Roast over Cheddar Ranch Grits – chuck roast slow cooked in a homemade BBQ sauce and served over Quick Cheddar Ranch Grits – this pot roast is SOOO good! I wanted to lick my plate! EVERYONE LOVES this pot roast!
Growing up I was never a pot roast fan, but since starting this blog I have found several pot roast recipes that I really like. Of all the recipes I’ve tried, this might be my favorite. The roast was extremely tender and juicy, and the sauce was tangy and has a little zip to it. I served this roast over some Cheddar Ranch Grits – OMG! The grits were good enough to eat all on their own, but were incredible when combined with the roast. This was SO good that I want to make it again next week – seriously!
