We had this for Easter dinner, and it was fabulous. The roast was fork tender and very moist and flavorful. I omitted the sliced celery because my family doesn't usually eat cooked celery. But otherwise followed the recipe instructions as written, and it was a fabulous meal. Thanks AnneMeanGrace. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.
