Loved this over spaghetti squash. 2nd time I made it I added chunks of red potatoes toward the end and put sweet potatoes on top. Freezes well.

This recipe was nice for a different way to prepare pot roast. I placed the roast in the crock pot and placed the vegetables on top so they wouldn't get mushy as they did for other reviewers, and that helped. It isn't one of my favorite recipes, but I may prepare it again sometime.

This smells delicious as it is cooking. The sauce is very flavorful. The carrots maintain a good texture when cooked, but we were not fans of the sweet potatoes. They turned out mushy, and did not soak up flavor from the sauce.

Really enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to make and different from the same old same old. I saw someone mentioned they might try it with a pork roast and that is exactly what I'm going to do.

Mmm- I'am not sure what to say about this recipe, i didn't think it was that bad, but my family wasn't trilled by it. I might try it with a pork loin instead of beef roast.

I really liked this recipe. It was a little to sweet for me so I added some red pepper flakes to give it a little heat. My family loved it.
