This was OK. The chili sauce definitely gives it a different flavor than other recipes for pot roast. My roast was over 3 pounds and 3 hours was way too long to cook it....it got extremely dried out. It was probably done at the 2 hour mark when I added the vegetables.

My whole family loves this recipe. We have it a couple times a month once fall and winter hit. The flavor is awesome and the leftovers reheat really well.Terri
