Reviews for Melt-In-Your-Mouth Chuck Roast
Sort By :
"I used a beef tender chuck roast.... It was so tough and definitely a bit too sweet. So I think I just used the wrong cut of meat...."
"This was excellent... a nice change from the traditional ingredients. I used a large can of tomatoes and had a good amount for gravy over rice. Because I have a few picky eaters in my family, I finely chopped up some of the veggies, thereby disguising them. Those picky eaters cleaned their plates!"
"Most definitely melt in your mouth for sure!! The spices permeate the meat. Good flavor combination. This dish goes well with a baked potato or mashed potatoes. Nice twist on a classic dish."
"My family enjoyed this. After reading the other reviews before making it, I omitted the sugar and waited until the last two hours to put in the green peppers. Didn't miss the sugar and the peppers were still mushy but was very flavorful. We'll make it again!"
"Kind of spicy and too sweet. Didn't like tomatoes and ketchup"
