This was so good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as writen other then I used 32 ounces of beef broth. Mine cooked for nine hours and was so tender and fell off the bone. I used a shoulder roast as that is what I had. Everyone enjoyed this.

What a great easy way to get dinner! I only used 1 can of beef broth. I had a short time to have dinner ready so cooked mine on high for 4 hours. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

Every region can claim pot roast roots and I believe my southern roots have grown even deeper. As a matter of fact I think they're now what I like to call platinum blonde. Made for Alphabet Soup.
