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 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 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."
