A delicious roast! The flavor of the sauce is not too-too sweet and sour but more of a mild sweet tomato flavor with just a little zip. The roast was nice and tender as were the potatoes. Very good, Inez, you have another winner here! Thanks!

Oh wow! Your are right about the aroma. Smelled up the entire house with an incredible aroma. Both the meat and potatoes came out very tender. The sauce was some kind of deeelicious and had us lickin the plate. Can't wait to share this one with my mom and sisters. Thanks.

Very different tasting roast. My family loved the taste of the meat, just a little hint of sweet. Unfortunately they didn't like the potatos as much. I served this with homemade bread and baby carrots. Everything was gone but the potatos. I will probably do it again with out the spuds!

Excellent, easy crock pot recipe! I added sweet potatoes instead of regular russets. (Trying to stick to the "Blood Type Diet.") Even DH loved it! The roast is so tender and flavorful. You will not be dissapointed!!!

I have made this 4 times now and the family loves it. One thing I did was add fresh carrots the last time. If you do that, cut down the brown sugar a bit as the carrots will add their own sweetener

This was very nice and easy to make! I used more potatoes as I have a large crockpot and really thick pieces of beef. The aroma as they say is absolutely beautiful the best I've smelt yet! Thanks for a keeper will make it again for sure!

The roast was very tender, but the sauce could use more "punch".
