MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2014

Amazing!!! We loved this dish, and it was so easy to make! I used about 3 lbs of pork roast and chuck roast (my mom swears by combining both roasts in a pan). I cooked them in a dutch oven in the oven for an hour at 375, then for about 3 more hours at 300. The meat was so tender and flavorful. I will definitely make this again soon!

I used canned beef gravy and it was delicious. I read the shopping list wrong, so I went for it

Not sure why, but we just didn't like the flavor of this. It does make a lot of gravy, so I understand why mashed potatoes are the suggested side. I added carrots and potatoes to the crock pot, and the flavors just didn't work well together.

My husband absolutely loves roast this way. His absolute favorite, and mine as well since it is so easy!
