The aroma of this roast slowly cooking in the oven is absolutely mouthwatering. It gives the home such a cozy feeling, even on the chilliest winter days. —Anita Osborne, Thomasburg, Ontario

"I have made this recipe several times. I got it from the Feb/Mar 2013 issue of Simple and Delicious Magazine. It is the best pot roast recipe I've ever made!"

"This recipe had a lot of deep flavor and the meat was very moist. I made this in the crockpot. I let it cook on low for 8 hours. I did sear the meat before placing it on all the veggies. Lastly I topped it off with the liquid. My husband really liked this dish and so did our guests. I did omit the corn starch & water slurry."

"Great recipe! I used the beef broth, and forgot to include the onion, but everything else was exact."

"This was very good. I omitted the sugar and used 1 cup cabernet sauvignon instead of sherry."

"Very good. Used dry red wine instead of sherry and skipped veggies. Will make again."
