Spiced Pot Roast Recipe

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!"

"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!!!"

"This recipe is so easy and has an amazing and different flavor. If you're not a curry lover, you can alter the amount. I add a bag of baby carrots into the roasting pan and they come out perfect. Make the southwestern muffins to go with this. Yummy!!"
