Pot roast is an American classic. When looking for a recipe, we wanted something simple that you could set up in the morning and have ready by the time you're home from work. Of course, what pot roast is complete without a sauce to be served with it?
This recipe uses fresh mushrooms, sour cream, and the roast drippings to create a savory, complex flavor that perfectly complements the meat. Serve this dish with vegetables on the side (we love green beans with this) for a complete meal. Keep reading below for our pot roast recipe…
