Pot roast — the dish we all know and love. We have it at any time of the year, for any occasion: Christmas dinner, after-work dinner on a Tuesday, birthday party. It's that go-to dish that pleases for any event or nonevent. Needless to say, the recipe below is a keeper, so be sure to print it out.
In this recipe, we take the magic of sun-dried tomatoes and combine them with Parmesan cheese to make a beautiful crust on the roast. Paired with garlic and fresh rosemary, the flavors of this pot roast are sure to wow just about everyone. Make sure to let your roast rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving. This step is super important in keeping your roast nice and moist.
