"Mmm- I'am not sure what to say about this recipe, i didn't think it was that bad, but my family wasn't trilled by it. I might try it with a pork loin instead of beef roast."

"I really liked this recipe. It was a little to sweet for me so I added some red pepper flakes to give it a little heat. My family loved it."

"My kids loved this and I can never get them to eat sweet potatoes! Only thing I will do differently is add a lil more zip to the sauce with some red pepper flakes and a little bit more tomato sauce."

"What a wonderful tasting pot roast! I just loved the flavors given by the sweet potato and seasonings. It was a nice change from the "traditional" flavored pot roast. There were no leftovers in my house -- my teenage son loved it so much he could not stop going back for more."

"I thought this was awesome. Such an interesting combination of flavors. Unfortunately, the cut of meat I bought was terrible. But the sauce was fantastic. The only change I would make next time would be to decrease the sugar by half or so."
