Slow Cooker Roast with Brandy Sauce Recipe

By | 2:44 PM Leave a Comment

There’s no denying that my family loves beef, especially a good slow cooker roast. I have to admit that I was a little worried they wouldn’t like this one as the brandy sauce adds a little sweetness to the flavor, and my brood has always been pretty traditional. According to them, savory goes with savory, and sweet with sweet, no combining. Much to my surprise, they all loved this recipe! My husband was the biggest surprise at all, actually taking a second helping and telling me how much he loved it.
