Love this recipe, it's my favorite pot roast. I've made it numerous times just as a roast and as a sandwich filling. Just shredded the meat and put back in the gravy. Awesome. Have taken to potlucks at work as a sandwich filling and everyone loved it. Thanks, Helen, for sharing this incredible recipe!!!
This was very good, made an excellent filling for tacos!
Been making this over and over since it first appeared in 1995! Best review is my husband's co workers requested the recipe after merely smelling the leftovers that he took for lunch reheating.
I used a can of hot Rotel instead of the diced tomatoes and I also added some diced onions and tomato paste. It was really good and spicy :o)
I've made this dozens of times since it was published, it's delicious! This time I converted it to a slow cooker recipe by using 1 can of stewed tomatoes in the bottom of the cooker, cutting the roast in half and adding it to the pot, then combining a second can of stewed tomatoes (instead of the diced tomatoes) together with the chilies, taco seasoning, beef bouillon, and sugar, and poured that over the top. No need to brown the meat. 6 hours on high was perfect. I scooped out the stewed tomatoes and served them on the side. MAKE THE GRAVY - it's wonderful!
