This recipe is great for the inexperience cook. It was easy to follow and the meat turned out tender with a great tomato taste. The gravy was even better. Served it with mashed potatotes and green beans.

I think I've found out that I prefer a creamy mushroom gravy with pot roast, but this was good and the family went up for seconds.

I made this recipe several times using the meat called for in the recipe. Turned out dry. so, the 3 stars mean I used a boneless chuck roast, which cooked up tender and moist. I did add the carrots and it turned out great. My husband said this way is better.
