THIS favorite recipe was one of my dear mother's, and each time I serve it, I'm filled with warm memories. This was our family's celebration roast. Mother served it on birthdays and holidays. The combination of herbs enhances the drippings as well, so I use it to make a flavorful gravy. -Ruth Bethurum, Ozan, Arkansas

"Instead of using canned mushrooms, I used a gluten free cream of mushroom soup. The roast turned out great with roasted potatoes."

"I made this one in the crockpot and it was amazingly tender. Perfect texture if you want to use leftovers to make pulled pork. The accompanying sauce was pretty good too - even my super-picky 8 year old liked it! Personally I thought it could use a bit more spice to it; next time I'll try to kick it up a bit and see what happens"

"I made this as written. It was tender and my husband enjoyed it but I did not care for the flavor myself. Maybe it was the ketchup? I would not discourage others from making it, though. It was just not to my taste."

"I did this in the slow cooker and used the whole can of chicken broth. I also used fresh mushrooms and added them at the begining. I cooked it on low over night. It was great,"
