On busy days, it's a comfort to know that my family can sit down to dinner minutes after we walk in the door. Double it to wow at a potluck. This recipe works in a slow cooker, too. —Virginia Krites, Cridersville, Ohio
In New Oxford, Pennsylvania, Emma Nye relies on her mother's pot roast recipe when company is coming. But when she merely wants to enjoy the savory sensation with her husband, she can turn to this downsized version.
I work full time but love to make home-cooked meals for my husband and son. It’s a comfort to walk in and smell this simmering roast that I know will be fall-apart tender and delicious. —Gina Jackson, Ogdensburg, New York
Diane Hixon's elegant slow-cooked meal is worthy of company. "I like to make it on special occasions," she writes from Niceville, Florida. "The tender steak cuts easily into appetizing spirals for serving, and extra stuffing cooks conveniently in a foil packet on top of the steak."
Slices of this elegant but easy special-occasion roast look so attractive, and you'll be delighted with the flavor. Water chestnuts add enjoyable crunch to the savory stuffing. It's an entree I'm proud to serve to guests.
-Mark Trinklein, Racine, Wisconsin
My husband and I both love the classic combination of beef and horseradish. He asks me to make this for dinner often, and I'm always happy to. Try serving with baked potatoes as a side.—Mary Lou Cook, Welches, Oregon
