    Gatorbek's Note:

    Simple, basic pot roast - adapt as you see fit! Sometimes I omit the mushrooms or celery, but other than that, I leave it alone. You can probably add more spices if you like.

      This is a great recipe. I changed it a bit by searing the meat first and adding two parsnips, one and a half baking potatoes instead of red and one Yeungling traditional lager for flavor. (I left out the mushrooms though I they would have been a nice addition.)
      It turned out fantastic!

      I thought that this recipe was very good.The only thing is that I thought that 10 hours was a bit long for a 2 pound roast as did another reviewer. I cooked it on low for under 8 hours and it was great.

      This is a nice way to pot roast--it's easy and th result was a nice and tender roast. My husband prefers much more spice but liked this just the same. Important to note is that in my crock pot the roast was done after 7 hours on low so keep the time frame in mind. Also, be sure to use a roast with plenty of fat for flavor.
