    shelbyrose's Note:

    This is the only way I'll do pot roast, and I've tried many over the years. Talk about the perfect comfort food! I usually make mashed potatoes, dumplings or egg noodles to go with this and smother all in the delicious gravy.

      Definitely comfort food for a fall night. We really enjoyed this served with plain rice. I checked the gravy before serving and it was too salty for me, so I added some extra water and thickened it with cornstarch. That worked quite well and the gravy was really tasty, I especially liked the use paprika. I'd definitely make this again, thanks for posting.

      This was very good and my family gobbled it up, but I thought it was salty and lacked a little of that "homemade" flavor. Maybe add a splash of red wine to deepen the flavor? With all the other pot roast recipes, I'll probably try another before I repeat this one.
