My husband and I really enjoyed this pot roast. The herbal flavors are very complimentary and I will definitely make it again!

My family love the herb blend flavor of this recipe. It makes good flavorful gravy as well.

I have used this recipe since it came out in the "Taste of Home" magazine many years ago. All the men in my family crave a good pot roast with gravy and this one makes a very flavorful gravy with the herbs in it. I usually make it in the crock pot rather than the oven but I've made it a lot in the oven as well. Either way, it's great!

My family doesn't like pot roast, but this recipe is the ONLY one they will eat. We love how moist the meat is, and tasty too! Nothing better on a cold winters day than the smell (and taste) of this delicious roast.

Herbed Pot Roast. It is wonderful. Its much better when it comes out of the crock-pot. My brother loves this so much. When he comes home for the holidays I make sure I make it for him.
