The Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner recipe challenge this week was for Beef Pot Roast with Maple Sweet Potatoes. I used the recipe as inspiration and then did my own thing. The roast turned out delicious. It smelled wonderful as it simmered in the slow cooker. The ingredients are a bit strange, and to be honest I wasn’t sure it would turn out at all. But I’m happy to say that we all loved it.
