MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2014

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 12, 2014

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 22, 2012

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!

I made this for dinner yesterday, it was so easy and it was the most mouthwatering and delicious roast I have ever made. I will definitely be keeping this one in my recipe folder.
