my hubby loved this. only thing i would change out of personal preference is to puree all of the veggies instead of half. and, out of necessity, i put it on high for 5 hours and it still turned out great!

Excellent pot roast. My wife hates, hates, hates pot roast! Did I mention that she hates pot roast? She loved this pot roast. Rather than buying Montreal seasoning, I made my own using Montreal Steak Seasoning. I sub'ed Goya Frozen Mango Pulp in place of the Mango nectar. Blending half of the veggies, mangos, and juice is a must do. It makes an excellent sauce for the meat. Will make this again, for sure! I should add that I seasoned the chuck overnight and browned it before putting it in the crock pot.
