As the author states, there are lots of pot roast recipes out there ...but this one is special. I agree wholeheartedly. I cooked the roast in the oven covered for about 3 hours after sticking it with about 3 cloves of garlic, searing it in bacon fat for about 5 minutes, sauteeing 1/2 large onion and several more cloves of garlic, then adding about 1 cup red wine, 2/3 qt beef broth, 2 cloves, 2 bay leaves, 1 tbs dried parsley & 1/2 tsp ground coriander. I then followed the remainder of the recipe without any variation. Absolutely delicious.

This was a good warm crockpot recipe for a cold day. We followed the ingredients per recipe. It cooked about 6 hours on high and was perfectly done. Made for PRMR.

Made this pot roast on top of the stove and instead of using water, I used tomato juice for the cooking liquid and I added about 1 teaspoon of fresh oregano leaves from my herb garden to the recipe. Followed all other directions. The roast was so tender and using tomato juice gave the gravy a velvety texture and increased the flavor. Easy way to use an inexpensive cut of meat that comes out delicious.

Bland and the meat wasn't tender like when I do pulled pork. Probably only 4 hours on high would've sufficed, but I still found it bland. Maybe stuffed with garlic like others have done.

I followed the recipe as it is printed, although I marinated the roast over night in the liquid ingredients in a plastic Ziploc bag, in the fridge, but added a small amount of soy sauce and a small amount of onion and garlic powder. Turned out fall apart tender.

Wow! One of the most delicious meals I've made this far. I followed this recipe and it was really easy. Of course the cook always seasons to taste. A little more of this and that and wala a meal fit for a queen

I made this in the crockpot and I loved how easy it was. My one year old gobbled it up, especially the vegetables (which she usualy won't eat!). The gravy is definitely needed, as the beef dries out pretty quickly. I had to add an extra teaspoon or so of beef bouillon.

Best pot roast recipe I've ever had. I made it with sweet potatoes, carrots, onions, celery plus put peels from two kiwis on the meat while cooking (tenderizer) discarding later before making gravy.

This recipe worked out so well for me. I've never cooked it before and my family loved it. The instructions were easy to follow and played to the fact that I don't want to spend all day in the kitchen. Thanks.
