Reviews for Autumn Pot Roast
"Great dish! Loved it. Family all enjoyed it for a Sunday dinner!"
"This is hands down, the best pot roast my husband and I have ever had. I've always thought pot roast was a man's meal and it's not something I really enjoy. This was FANTASTIC. I will never make another pot roast recipe in my life :)"
"My family loves this!"
"This is a fantastic recipe. We love it. I make it a least once every Fall and it always gets rave reviews. The savory sauce with a little bit of tang almost tastes like Sauerbraten, without having to marinate for three days! ....and the meat always comes out fork tender. As a matter of fact, I'm going to serve it with German potato dumplings this weekend. Thanks TOH!"
