Salty, but perfect over mashed potatoes. Will definitely be making this again.

It is very flavorful but also very salty. I like things a little salty and this was too salty for me.

I made some mashed potatoes and served the meat over the potatoes and there were no leftovers! I used beef stock instead of water and this was the most flavorful roast I've ever had. Definitely making it again!

I made this a week ago and felt I should like it since I've heard so much about this type of roast. I used this recipe which except I added the pepperoncini as the recipe for Mississippi Pot roast uses. It was just average. Was hoping to rave about it but can't. Won't make this again.

the finish product was delicious, but I only used half of the packages. I served it with mashed potatoes and corn fritters...

Family favorite. My daughter first made this & we thought it too salty, too, so she recommended when I make it, add 1/2 packets of ranch & Italian dressing mix & use lower sodium gravy mix. I do & that helps lower sodium. Very easy, tasty.

Did a 2 1/2 # pot roast with half the mixes and turned out perfect. Only there wasn’t much gravy and I added 2 c water and didn’t add beef bouillon to make up for it so it wasn’t as tasty as it could have been. I served the gravy over the roast and mashed potatoes. My husband is a chef and he said the roast was amazing and moist. I will make this from now on but will make sure to make the gravy to match.

Loved this recipe!!! The only thing that I changed was I substituted with 32 oz of beef broth and added diced golden potatoes with carrots. Excellent recipe.

We did not like this at all. It was too salty from all the packaged mixes. I will not be making this again.
