I ALWAYS looked forward to Sunday dinner at my grandparents' house, because Grandmother was the best cook anywhere. All her meals were delicious, but I especially loved dinners featuring this savory pot roast. It's wonderful with garden-fresh vegetables on the side and a dessert made with apples. -Frances Wilson, Tulsa, Oklahoma

"Wonderful! I served this at a dinner party for ten so I doubled the recipe and crossed my fingers. I thought it was an interesting ingredient list and was curious about how it would turn out. Everyone LOVED it and were asking for the recipe. This one is a keeper. The gravy is outstanding!"

"I have made this for yrs. when i found it then,also have passed it on. Even to a couple of new brides,their guest's thought they were excellant cooks!!! This is so easy to make. Just a good ol' family favorite!!! I wouldn't be afraid of the curry,as you can get mild to medium whatever you want. You are missing out by not trying this!!!"
