Eveyone one just loved this dish. I added potatos and carrots instead of the celery. I also doubled the liquid (cider and molasses), and the cornstarch mixture at the end.
Very good! I served with Sauteed Mushrooms #28766 over the top and it really matched well! (We were not crazy about the sauce from the meat -- I will try apple juice next time instead of apple cider). Thanks so much for the recipe!
Very good! I reduced the molasses to one tablespoon because I thought two might be too sweet for our taste, and it was just the right amount then. The meat was tender and moist, not at all dry. I'll make this again. Thanks for sharing!
The beef was tender and tasted ok enough to eat. The sauce was bad and looked sort of green. It wasn't really sweet, just not a flavor that I enjoyed.
We just didn't enjoy this. We didn't like the sweet flavors with the beef, won't be making this again.
Absolutely terrific! My guests devoured this. I used a pot roast, one that was a little bigger than called for in the recipe (just under 5 pounds), and it still came out wonderful. Next time I will add a bit more black pepper, but that's personal preference. I also doubled the amount of cornstarch to get the gravy to the consistency I wanted (maybe because the roast was larger, I had more liquid to work with). Served with mashed potatoes, this was a comforting, hearty dish with unexpected yet *tasty* flavors. The gravy really makes it something special. Thanks for sharing a recipe I will make again and again.
Wow - this was the most tender roast of beef I have ever tasted! We just didn't find that the sauce added much flavour to the meat.
I made this for Sunday dinner and my fiance really liked it. I was okay with it, just wasn't my taste in terms of flavouring. But I will likely try it again to see if it was an off-day for me. Thanks for posting!
My family really enjoyed this because the sweet flavor was a surprise. I served it with mashed potatos and corn. I really loved how easy it is to make. Thank you!
Just wanted everyone to know that, although I do use eye of the round roast, often for this, I have often used less tender cuts of beef,and would say the less tender turns out very tastey and really just as good!! just do not use any "bone in" roasts for it. Happy cooking!!
