"I made this in the Crock Pot on Sunday and the house smelled delicious! I thought that the flavor was just OK. It smelled better than it tasted. It was overall too sweet. If I do it again, I will cut down on the juice and add some diced tomatoes or some other veggie to the pot."

"This is by far the best roast I have ever made. It disappeared quick. It was moist and tender...it melted in your mouth. And the sauce had a really great flavor. We even used the sauce on the potatoes and veggies that I roasted!"

"This is an incredibly moist roast with a rich savory gravy. It is incredibly easy to make but is packed with a depth of flavor. I would recommend this to anyone!"
