very good flavor....too many tomatoes, maybe just use a 15 oz. can....good subtle flavor from oregano and basil...i minced 4 garlic cloves and used 1 beef bouillion cube for the broth...reduced the salt to 1 tsp....served with mashed potatoes...very tasty.

This was done for me after 3.5 hours (my cooker runs hot, even on "low"). Very good. The gravy was really good on the meat and my mashed potatoes! Next time, I'll add quartered mushrooms to the tomato mixture or gravy b/c we're big on 'shrooms. But sure, I'd make this again...and I don't even like pot roast! I couldn't find the wine, so I used beef broth, and that was no problem. While this was cooking, the house smelled yummy.

We didn't really think this recipe had enough flavor to eat by itself. However, the meat did cook up nice and tender so I just use this recipe when I need shredded beef for another dish. Works great!

One more comment. There was a lot of gravy leftover. I think it would be delicious served over egg noodles.
