Reviews for Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pot Roast
"This turned out fabulous. I used fresh herbs and added 1 cup of water and a package of brown gravy mix about an hour before it was done. I will definitely make this again."
"This was the first time I've ever cooked a Pot Roast in my crockpot.. It was a success. Meat is very tender, as are the pots and carrots, ( I added 1 stalk of celery as well ) however, I did add a packet of Lipton Onion Soup Mix, the last hour, because the flavor wasn't very powerful.. I barely used Rosemary and Thyme, so I didn't have an issue with over powering taste.. Family loved it , I'll definitely make it again.Thanks"
"I normally use the "Flavorful Pot Roast" recipe from Taste of Home, but decided to venture out and try this recipe because at a glance it has a 4 star rating and #1 ribbon, but DO NOT waste your time on this recipe. It may melt in your mouth, but it is bland and awful. At the last minute, I added the contents from the flavorful recipe just to not ruin my roast!"
"It was okay, nothing spectacular."
"I joined this site JUST to be able to warn others about this horrible recipe. I ruined a $20 roast with this horrible method of "melt in your mouth" pot roast. The meat (after nearly 13 hours off slow cooking) was rubbery and very bland. This is the worst recipe on the planet. Do not use these directions."
"Very Good, Used a venison roast instead of beef turned out great and it just fell apart."
"Sorry to say the meat was quite tasteless. As another reviewer stated, everything tasted like rosemary ..... So disappointing!"
"Terrible. Meat was not tender and the flavor was so bland. Ended up taking a bite and throwing away"
"A little different take on classic pot roast. Just as good."
"I made this today and loved it; however I did not use the mustard and rosemary. I do love Dill on these vegetables. When we were growing up, our mother would use the roast and gravy and put it on a white piece of bread for a lunch.You have to really cook pot roast the way you like it. We just used plane and simple vegetables butter, salt and pepper. Of course our mother could make those old fashion yeast rolls which were incredible. I still can not make them."
