My husband and I like well-seasoned foods, so this slow-cooked recipe is terrific. You'll also love how flavorful and tender this comforting roast turns out. —Bette McCumber, Schenectady, New York

"This was a split decision. While we loved the meat, the sauce was way to sweet for us. The gravy had a nice thickness, but brown sugar....not for us"

"Followed the recipe as is, just reduced brown sugar to 2 tbsp and I added some baby carrots the last hour of cooking. Absolutely amazing flavor!"

"Really good flavors! I cooked it all day but will reduce the cooking time to what's listed next time. The meat was a little dry even with the sauce. Makes great gravy!"

"This had a delicious mix of flavors. Will probably hold back on garlic next time. Roast was so tender. Only change I made was using cornstarch and beef broth to make gravy. Will definitely make again."

"Worst pot roast ever! My mouth is still caving in from the acidic flavors. Can't drink enough water to get rid of that taste. I'm a good cook, and love pot roast, not this one. Horrible!"
