Wonderful flavored pot roast or you may use a crock pot. You could add potatoes to make this a complete meal in one pot. Add potatoes for the last 45 minutes of cooking time in the Dutch Oven . If you are using a crock pot allow5 1/2 hours on low put your veggies (including potatoes) on the bottom of the crock pot put roast on top, turn roast after 3 hours and baste with sauce. I prefer doing this recipe in a Dutch oven .

I used a goat roast for this recipe and used the dutch oven method -- it turned out very tasty. I think I will use the crockpot the next time though, as that method just seems easier to me. Thank you for sharing!

Good stuff! I didn't have any canned tomatoes, so mixed in a couple tablespoons of tomato paste with the beef broth instead. I used italian seasoning in place of the thyme, oregano and basil (since those are the main ingredients in the seasononing mixture). I don't think my subs would have changed the outcome of the posted recipe very much, so giving it 5 stars as-is -- super yummy dinner!
