Excellent flavor!! I cooked it in the oven - cooking time was perfect for the roast, but I would increase the time for the veggies a little bit. We served the leftover meat on mashed potatoes - yummy! Next time I will be making this in the crockpot. Thanks for a delicious pot roast!

What a refreshing change of flavor from the usual beef roast! Didn't thicken the broth---just poured it over the shredded beef and served. Definitely freezing the remaining delicious broth. Also saved a piece of beef to try on sandwiches. Very happy to have discovered this different twist on roast beef!

This was excellent. I've made it twice now. One without the 1cp beef broth and still turned out the most delicous dish I've made lately.
