When I was doing my weekly on-line shop the other week a recipe for Beef Pot Roast popped up on the Sainsbury website. It looked like a simple meal to do and perfect for these dreary dull days!

Excuse the size of our dinner, for some reason I’d done extra vegetables to go with it!! It was really tasty though.
