This is a simple, classic, and oh so satisfying meal that everyone loves. You can easily toss all the ingredients in the slow cooker before work and come home to absolutely delicious and hearty dinner. What a great way to wind down from the day.
As a side note, we know this recipe calls for yukon gold potatoes, but SLO Veg thinks fingerlings would make a great substitute. Fingerlings are an heirloom variety of potatoes with a distinct nutty flavor that tastes great in a roast!
