    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This makes a nice dinner to come home to, you can use from a 3-pound to a 5-pound roast for this recipe, don't add any extra salt to this recipe, the seasonings have plenty of added salt to them, and 1/3 cup dry red wine can be added if desired. This is a very good recipe for crock pot roast! Servings are only estimated depending on the size of roast you are using. I prefer to use blade roast but you can use any pot roast you desired even a pork butt roast would would with this!

      My girlfriend (who does not cook!) made this today and it was DELICIOUS! She made it according to directions and it turned out perfectly. The meat was flavorful, tender and melted in your mouth. The vegetables had perfect texture. We served it with green beans and rice. This is definitely a keeper!
