Reviews for Garlic Pot Roast
"Love it! Everyone in my family liked this Roast and made a point of telling me to NOT misplace this recipe. Definately going to make this roast once a month."
"My family went nuts for this recipe! I made a few slight variations to the recipe, but it's the recipe's base ingredients that make this roast so outstanding! I marinated the chuck roast in Pepsi for about an hour before searing it in the pan; I then used the Pepsi as a base for the basting sauce, adding additional water to it to reach the 3 cups of liquid. I also added flour to the spice rub before rubbing it on the chuck roast. Finally, I turned the chuck roast a few times in the basting sauce while it was cooking. I also roasted the vegetables in a separate dish from the chuck roast so that they would get a little crispy. I tossed the vegetables with salt, pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, and olive oil before roasting."
