Sweet and Sour Pot Roast

This pot roast recipe is so good!  I’ve made quite a few pot roast recipes and they all seem to be missing something, but the sweetness from the cranberry sauce adds that missing element.  Everyone enjoyed this dinner, and it will certainly become a favorite at our house.  Definitely company worthy too!
