Herbed Pot Roast Recipe

Herbed Pot Roast Recipe

I prepare this delicious main dish several times a month. The herbs and vegetables give the beef an excellent taste. My husband, Jack, a real meat-and-potatoes man, even enjoys the leftovers, which isn't always the case with other dishes. -Christel McKinley, East Liverpool, Ohio

"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."
