Barbecued Pot Roast Recipe

Publisher Photo
WHEN I was married 45 years ago, my mother gave me this recipe. I always prepared this dish when we had company because it never failed and was so good! Through the years, it became one of my family's favorite meals, and now I still often fix it for just the two of us. Whenever I do, my husband and I get to enjoy the bonus of leftovers! -Emma Nye, New Oxford, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW

My husband is not a big meat eater, so I look for recipes that are flavorful. This one hit the mark. I think it could be done in the crock pot.

This doesn't take much effort and is quite tasty.

This was really easy to make and it came out great! I would definitely make this one again. For my own preferences I'd use less tomato sauce as I'm not a fan of tomatoes.

Dear Emma, You gave our family another new favorite recipe. My husband made it for supper tonight and we expected to have leftovers for tomorrow, but it's pretty much all gone. Thanks for a great recipe for family and for guests. I don't like too many barbecue sauces but this one is subtly sweet and not too overpowering like so many sauces are. Thumbs up from all of us.
