Very good! I used regular port as well. The gravy was nicely flavored and the beef smelled so good while cooking.
WOW! Sometimes I don't take the time to rate recipes but this one deserved 5 stars immediately! I would give it more if I could. I have been on the hunt for the perfect pot roast for years. This is it! I did as a fellow reviewer and used regular port because that is what I had. I did skip the mushrooms, we just don't eat them. Superb! Perfect gravy! I love that it used ingredients I have on hand most of the time. I can't wait to serve this to guests! I served it with red skinned mashed potatoes and glazed carrots! I can't say enough, Thanks Rick!! A ++++++++
Excellent pot roast. So easy to make, also. I didn't make any adjustments other than the fact that I used port instead of tawny port. I cut the roast into serving size pieces about half way thru cooking so they could absorb more of the flavor of the delicious gravy. My husband, who usually insists on having ketchup with his pot roast, ate this without it.
