"I grew up eating pot roast but disliked it until I got this recipe and changed a few ingredients," says Patricia Gasmund from Rockford, Illinois. "My 7-year old especially loves the seasoned apple gravy."
This isn't really an ethnic dish...we named it "Bohemian" because my husband is of Bohemian extractionand he loves this pot roast! I love it, too, because it's so easy to prepare and serve. You can put this "meal in one dish" together to cook, then practically forget about it until dinnertime. Coleslaw is a great accompaniment.
Our children wouldn't dream of eating sauerkraut until they tasted it with this tender and juicy pork roast at a family celebration. They devoured it and went back for seconds! Now it's a mainstay in my pork recipe file.
In Moberly, Missouri, Andrea Schumann relies on honey, white wine and a little lemon juice for a low-carb entree that everyone enjoys. "The marinade has a light, flavorful taste that works well with any cut of pork," she promises.
A simple dry rub is enough to turn roast beef into a real crowd pleaser. The slightly spicy meat is scrumptious the first and second time around, piled on top of fresh crusty bread. —Allison Ector, Ardmore, Pennsylvania
Meet the Cook: Since I was in 4-H, I've been an avid cook. This recipe's one my mother-in-law and I developed together. The topping also goes great with pork chops, lean sausage balls or patties and ham.
My husband and I have seven children, 15 grandchildren and one on the way. Gardening's our favorite pastime.

I've discovered a variety of small roasts that work well for two, without creating leftovers for the rest of the week. This prime rib is perfect for a holiday meal when company isn't coming. The portion for each is generous, and the flavor is unsurpassed.
