This tasted just like my Mom used to make - proper home cooking! It was such a good recipe. I added 1 Tbsp more flour and some Worcestershire sauce and the gravy was the perfect consistency. Really enjoyed this!

This was really bland. Not enough flavor for us.

This is an excellent recipe. I made a couple adjustments. I used 14 oz tomato sauce, added 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce, and a couple extra tbs of flour. I placed vegetables on bottom and then placed meat on top and added sauce mixture. We loved it.

This has been my son's favorite pot roast for over a decade. It turns out great everything and the gravy is unbelievable. We serve it with the roast sliced thin over open face biscuits with the gravy on top.

This turned out to be the best pot roast I've ever made. I love the way it made its own gravy. Thanks to the reviewer who suggested adding herbs de provence. I added about a teaspoonful instead of a couple of pinches and the gravy was very tasty.

My husband and I are living in France this year, and I have become accustomed to using Herbes de Provence in many recipes. Two pinches of those and a dash or two of a Gravy Master type flavoring really added some zip to this recipe.

excellent alternative blend of a good old pot roast and swiss steak

The meat turned out nice and tender, and the veggies were nicely cooked, but this needs way more seasoning to jazz it up.
