Slow Cooker Italian Pot Roast

This Italian flavored pot roast has the best flavor of any pot roast that we have had in a very long time. I have a little secret ingredient that you would never guess would be in an Italian blend. A slow cooker pot roast is always so tender it will just fall apart when serving not to mention the smell begins to make the whole kitchen so inviting.
