Spiced Pot Roast

I ALWAYS looked forward to Sunday dinner at my grandparents' house, because Grandmother was the best cook anywhere. All her meals were delicious, but I especially loved dinners featuring this savory pot roast. It's wonderful with garden-fresh vegetables on the side and a dessert made with apples. -Frances Wilson, Tulsa, Oklahoma

    Wonderful! I served this at a dinner party for ten so I doubled the recipe and crossed my fingers. I thought it was an interesting ingredient list and was curious about how it would turn out. Everyone LOVED it and were asking for the recipe. This one is a keeper. The gravy is outstanding!

    I have made this for yrs. when i found it then,also have passed it on. Even to a couple of new brides,their guest's thought they were excellant cooks!!! This is so easy to make. Just a good ol' family favorite!!! I wouldn't be afraid of the curry,as you can get mild to medium whatever you want. You are missing out by not trying this!!!

    This is such a awesome recipe,by far the best pot roast ever!!! I found this recipe yrs ago and was pleased that i found it online! It has gotten to be a tradition to make it for my hunter's in the fall. But we have had it for after church many times. It is a family favorite! Thank you for sharing it!!

    YES, YES, YES, I would make this recipe again! What great flavor! Just the right recipe for a snowy night in (of all places) Arizona! The curry isn't overwhelming, which is good for my spice-intolerant boyfriend. He loved this recipe. Kudos to you, Frances Wilson, for sharing your Grandmother's best. I will be sharing servings of this with my 75 year old mother tomorrow. She is going through chemo and is craving anything with flavor. This fills the bill. Total yum-ness!!!

    LOVED this recipe. It's easy to make and tastes just as great as it smells. Even my picky nine year old loved it!
