"What a delicious flavor. This would be a great Sunday afternoon dinner. Was a little confused about the time schedule though. The prelim says 15 minute prep and 4 hours cooking, however, the recipe uses 6 hours. The temperature on the roast was at 170 degrees after 4 1/2 hours so I removed the roast and continued on with the cabbage by itself. It turned out great! I will definitely make it again."

"Pretty decent, but had way too much liquid."

"Very tender, lots of flavor! We will definatley make this dish again at our house. It was easy to cook since it was in the crock pot. It's pretty much a meal in itself but we liked some applesauce on the side. It was great!"

"This was great. My roast was at 160 degrees well before the six-hour mark, so I'll adjust the time next time. But the cabbage just melts in your mouth; the meat was very moist; and it made a definitely decent gravy. Big thumbs up to this one."
