Nathan's Favorite Recipe (Italian Roast)

Italian roast is such a great easy recipe, Nathan (my oldest son) loves this dish and requested it for his birthday!   This recipe is so easy though that it can be made any day not just for a special occasion.  Everyone in our family loves it, which makes my life much simpler, the flavors are very bold and slightly spicy.  We love to have this with cornbread muffins, drizzle some of the juice over the top and the taste will blow your mind.  I get so many compliments when I make this and it is honestly one of the easiest recipes to prepare.  So next time you need something fast and easy throw this in the crock pot before heading off to work, church, a play date, etc...

Italian Roast

4-5 pound roast
3 tsp salt (I know this seems like a lot)
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
6 ounces tomato sauce (a little less than a small can)

Cook roast alone in the crock pot 4-6 hours on low.
Drain off some of the juice and shred the roast.
Place shredded meat back in crock pot and add tomato sauce.
Mix well and then add seasonings and mix again!
Serve with cornbread, the juice on top of the cornbread is AMAZING!
