      Rosemary-Apricot Brisket Pot Roast



      With spring underway, many moms and dads are rushing to get the kids to extracurricular activities. It’s not always easy to get dinner on the table quickly, but one-pot meals make it doable - especially when you can utilize the slow cooker as your at-home chef. While pot roasts are our most popular slow cooker recipes, we know you need some variety in your pot roast repertoire.

      So we decided to stick with the theme and change it up just a touch. This version of a traditional slow cooker pot roast is made special with the addition of savory rosemary and sweet apricots, and we used beef brisket instead of chuck roast. You can use whichever cut you prefer - we’re just happy to change things up a little bit and add a something new to your arsenal.
