Reviews for Tender Bavarian Pot Roast
"I made this in the Crock Pot on Sunday and the house smelled delicious! I thought that the flavor was just OK. It smelled better than it tasted. It was overall too sweet. If I do it again, I will cut down on the juice and add some diced tomatoes or some other veggie to the pot."
"Very easy, and since i used a crock pot liner it was easy to clean up after. As for the taste, i thought it was just ok, but my husband said it was really, really, really good!"
"My sisiter's Birthday Dinner- Yummo!"

"This is by far the best roast I have ever made. It disappeared quick. It was moist and tender...it melted in your mouth. And the sauce had a really great flavor. We even used the sauce on the potatoes and veggies that I roasted!"
"This is an incredibly moist roast with a rich savory gravy. It is incredibly easy to make but is packed with a depth of flavor. I would recommend this to anyone!"
"Very dry meat--Tast is so so."
