Reviews for Flavorful Pot Roast
"This was very good - might add 1 cup of beef broth (low sodium) next time instead of water, to give it a little more beef flavor. Also added carrots & potatoes on top and made gravy with left over juices for a complete meal."
"This was really good. I only used one roast."
"The best pot roast ever. Have made this many times and you can't beat it for easy and sooooo tasty!"
"Taste of Home use to be real recipes by real cooks. This recipe is terrible. It's full of prepackaged, fake ingredients, artificial colors, artificial flavors, preservatives, way too much salt and is very unhealthy. Do not feed this recipe to your Family. Cook real food."
"Excellent! I added baby potatoes, portabella and button mushrooms for the last 4 hours."
"My kind of crock pot recipe - quick and easy! Smelled so yummy and the meat just fell apart! Served with mashed potatoes and hubby put the extra gravy on everything."
"Just a great and easy recipe. We have a large family and this Christmas will be the third time I've made this wonderful entree. Thank you!"
"My wife made this the other night and we all loved it. She doubled the ingredients because she added vegetables to it. Its a keeper for us. Well make again."
