Made for Summer '09 Comfort Cafe and it made my house smell like November. I kid you not. This was absolutely the most delicious chuck roast I have ever had, and that includes my mother's!! I will NEVER cook a chuck/pot roast again without using this recipe. OUTSTANDING. I did use apple cider, although that was the only change. Thank you for this wonderful recipe Dancer!!
Never thought this would work with beef, pork well yes,but beef? It DOES and is quite different. Followed the recipe with a 3lb chuck roast, used purple sweet onions as that is all I had, used apple cider which I bet is better than the apple juice, and all the rest the same as recipe. Beef with a sweet tang it was great. Hope I can make it happen just the same way again and there will be an again! Thanks for this one and others Dancer!
I made this last night and it was a hit. I left out the sweet potatoes and made mashed. Then I added a touch of flour and lots of pepper to the jus and made a gravy. We will be having this again. Thank you!
