I thought this dish had a very unique flavor that I really enjoyed. The husband thought it tasted like pot roast and pumpkin pie, but there's no need to listen to his opinion. ;) I did not brown the roast first, but I don't think it mattered at all. This was great! My only "fault" with this recipe is that our potatoes came out a little mushier than I had hoped. I think next time I'll cut them into much larger pieces and see if that makes a difference.
I used a mixture of russet potatoes, yams and carrots in this dish - and really liked having the yams in there. I didn't feel that the ginger snap cookies really gave the roast any flavor at all and found the dish rather bland. If I were to make again I would add onions, garlic and maybe up the vinegar and red pepper flakes for more zip.
Very easy and very good!
Everyone loved this. Great with noodles and Challah for Shabbat dinner. I left out the sweet potatoes and red pepper and use a large bag of baby carrots. I doubled the sauce and didn't added 2 tablespoons of brown sugar becuase I figured I was missing some sweet from the sweet potatoes. I also didn't bother browning the roast first. I put this in the pot around 10 AM and at 6:30ish we had a great meal. Thanks for posting. I'll make this one again for sure.
Great flavours! I used a sirloin roast, and the meat just melted in your mouth, and we really liked the way the sweet potatoes broke down and made a bit of a stew. I used russet potatoes instead of carrots, otherwise, didn't change a thing. Yummy! Thanks Saturn! Made for PAC Fall 2007.
I couldn't find my original recipe for this dish so I "Googled" it and ended up here. This is even better than the recipe that I was using! The red wine vinegar & red pepper gave it a nice kick. I thickened the gravy right in the Crock Pot and put it over wide egg noodles. Browning the roast is messy and time consuming but well worth the effort. A winner!
Delicious, succlent, and different. This roast had a lot of flavor and was a very easy recipe to prep for. I did not care for the vegetables and sauce, but I think they would be a hit with the meat and potatoes lovers.
My husband requests this all the time & my 3 year old likes it too. It is delicious & so easy to make! YUMMY!
This was so good on this cold December day! So easy to make, smelled great while cooking, and very tasty and filling. The only thing I did differently was to add 4 potatoes, and 1 stalk celery. The first time my kids ate sweet potatoe and loved it! Thank you for posting this fantastic recipe.
