Reviews for Sassy Pot Roast
"This roast was okay but not a replacement for my regular standby recipe. It had a distinct sweet sour tang to it that was palatable but not something I would choose to make again. Obviously my review is the exception to the rule. Generally I do like sweet sour flavors but with this roast, it was just not something that was a preferred taste for my family."
"This is so very good. It's a good change from my regular roast beef. With the left overs I piled it on hamburger buns and everyone gobbled them up. Thanks for the recipe."
"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 is such a delicious and perky pot roast, the flavors are very lively and its not to heavy on the calories! 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."
