"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."
