    Wildflour's Note:

    Searching for that "Grandma's house smells so good" pot roast dinner? Got it right here! Have perfected it, and MAN! (Actually worked on this recipe for several years now, don't be fooled by the mustard and horseradish, the flavors mellow as it cooks, and tastes like you literally stepped back in hope you try this, it's wonderful, and a keeper...:)

      One of my favorite recipes! The house smells wonderful while it is cooking. After searing the meat, I put everything in the crockpot and the house will smell amazing all day! I also like to de-glaze the pan with a little beef broth after I sear the meat to get all the good flavor from the there and I add it to the pot.

      This is great! I used a 2.88lb chuck eye roast and added more mustard and horseradish to it after tasting the "gravy". I used a crock pot, skipped the browning in the skillet and just salt and peppered the roast and spread the horseradish/mustard mixture on both sides. I layered the onions, potatoes and carrots and added the beef broth, I didn't feel a need to add butter. Next time I think I'll actually use less broth. The final result after letting it cook for 10 hours on low was VERY tender meat and delious "gravy". My husband rated this a 9.5, which means he really liked it as he has never rated anything a 10.....yet!
