I'm going to praise myself for a minute here and say this really is the best tasting roast EVER. AND I challenge everyone to check it out. The flavor is amazing, THE LEFT OVERS, ESPECIALLY THE POTATOES, WERE AWESOME THE NEXT DAY!!!!!! please NOTE** regarding the review received--I tried making it with a packet of dry Italian seasoning mix and it was just as good!

This roast is terrific!! We used our gravy/fat separator for the yummy gravy to get rid of the fat. IT was awesome!! We will make this again!!

Very good. A great comfort dish that doesn't heat up the kitchen. I added in some carrots to make it a complete meal. Thanks!

I'm sorry, but that was the worst meal I've ever made. Waste of money. My husbands clam omlet is better. To think, I spent all that money, in these time of hardship. Sorry
