Reviews for Bavarian Pot Roast
Sort By :
"I made this a couple of times; it's very good. I added carrots and served it with mashed potatoes rather than noodles."
"I use Heineken dark beer one whole bottle full instead of the broth and water. Other than that all the same. Has been a hit for years around here and requested again from every guest who ever had it. Usually serve it with mashed potatoes, something green and a fruit.When I take it to a potluck there are no leftovers ever."
"Delicious, will be making again!"
"Absolute family favorite, requested for birthday dinners."
"We loved this!! A nice change from the normal pot roast. I really liked the cinnamon in it. I made it in the slow cooker & it came out great!"
