Take 5 minutes to make the rub.  Slather it on the roast.  Put it in the slow cooker.  Add a cup of broth. Cover, turn it on and walk away.  Perfect recipe.  Easy peasy and delicious.

I served it up with a sweet potato casserole that I will be sharing with you on Saturday, roasted brussels with apples and onions that will be coming later in the month and a bottle of Merlot.  What a great meal!!!
