Part of the enjoyment with this recipe, for me, is the warm, rich aromas that waft through the house as the pot roast cooks. By the time dinner rolls around, there is great anticipation for the meal at hand. The best part about this recipe is that it is simple to make and can provide leftovers for several additional meals.

    Can this be cooked longer than 8 hours? Say, about 10? I leave for work at about 7:30 in the morning, and don’t get back until about 5:30.

      Sorry I’m afraid that would be way too long…it will dry out if cooked longer than 8.
