I love walking into my home after a long day and smelling this lovely pot roast. You can add potatoes and carrots to round out the meal, and the leftover meat makes a comforting soup for the next night. —Susan Burkett, Monroeville, Pennsylvania

"This pot roast was a great change from some other recipes. I added carrots the last 5 hours of cooking, it turned out great, the carrots weren't mushy. I will definitely make this again."

"This has a great tangy flavor and was perfect for a rump roast instead of a chuck roast. I added the potatoes and carrots to the crockpot to make a full meal.

This was a very nice change of pace from the typical pot roast I make."

"This was great...I put it in the slow cooker Monday morning after Thanksgiving. Easy meal on the first work day after holiday and a delicious meal after all the turkey. Everyone in my family (including sons 4 and 6) liked it."
