    We really liked this recipe. It's easy to make, and has a fabulous and unique flavor. I strained the liquid from the tomato mixture and served it over the beef with rice.

    I thought this was just okay; definitely not your traditional pot roast.

    I made this for Superbowl Sunday, and everyone loved it! It was so easy to put together, and it has a wonderful flavor. Would make this again!
