"Used 1.4# chuck roast, whole baby carrots and whole baby gold potatoes. Came out perfect, 2 hrs in cast iron pot using extra beef broth to keep moist. Left out last 3 ingredients, did not sound good to us. Picky eater husband will eat again, next time making biscuits to sop up juice, yumm!"

"Goos recipe. I especially like the idea you can still eat favorites like pot roast even if there are only 2 of you. However, I substituted boneless chuck roast for the round steaks, it's much tenderer, used golden mushroom soup for the diced tomatoes, and thickened the gravy."

"My husband is a meat and potatoes kinda guy, and since there are just two of us, this dinner is perfect! There are very rarely any leftovers, and I love soaking up the juices with bread."
