"This recipe sounds so great , but when i made it the meat came out dry and the gravy was not what i was expecting."
"This is now the only pot roast I make. It is delish! I love the flavors - the gravy comes out perfect every time. It couldn't be easier to make, too. In fact, it's cooking in my crockpot for tonight's dinner! I highly recommend trying this!"
"I was really disappointed in this roast. My husband and I felt it was mediocre. I cooked it on low for 8 hrs. and it was tender but a little dry. The gravy is what I was looking forward to and it was lacking in something, not sure exactly what. I will not be trying this one again."
"This was very tasty, and easy to throw together before heading to work for the day. I will definitely make this one again. The gravy was very flavorful as well."
"This was very easy to make and tasted delicious when it was finished. I cooked it for 8 hours and although it was very moist it was not as tender as I would have liked. Next time I make it I will cook it longer. I will be making this again!"
