I got my slow cooker at Target.

Calphalon is the #1 cookware brand in the US. With their superior durability, ultimate performance, and functional elegance.

What I love about this new line of precision cookware from Calphalon is how versatile it is.

This slow cooker can go straight from the stove top into the slow cooker base and cook for hours. That’s right – you can SEAR in this slow cooker.

This took slow cooking to the next level for me. All the flavor from searing stays in the pot!

  1. I’m from Mississippi and never heard of this recipe. My cousin who lives in Gulfport gave me the recipe and it is fabulous.

    1. I have never tried it personally, but I googled it and from the blog Gonna Want Seconds, Kathleen says you can “in a big Dutch oven wrapped in foil, then covered with the lid, for 3 – 4 hours at 350 degrees.”

  2. I loved this recipe also. We ate the leftovers on slider buns with some spices! Delicious! I would like to maybe double recipe or a bit larger roast for a bigger group. How would that change things?

    1. The same seasonings can be used up to a 3-pound roast. If you get one 4-pounds or larger, I would double everything. However, I have not tried that myself so I cannot guarantee the outcome. I’m so glad you liked it!
