This has been my way for making pot roast that my family really likes. It does take a little more time to prepare but the flavor is well worth it.

We had this last night for supper and it was very tasty. Did it in the crockpot and left the potatoes out and boiled and mashed them instead. Thankyou Barbara for the recipe

This was really good, the flavor of the roast itself was outstanding!! I did add some garlic to the recipe which may or may not have helped the flavor some, I made slits thruout the roast and stuffed them with minced garlic before I browned it. The only problem I did have with it, was the liquid had evaporated away before it was even close to adding the veggies, and I had to keep adding more water to it, maybe the heat was to high, I had used an electric skillet, but only set it at 225 degrees. I will probably make this again, (the flavor great) but at an even lower temp next time.
