Just absolutely hit the spot. I made a few enhancements to the gravy (little Country Bob's, and used beef broth instead of water), and added a couple of whole cloves of garlic to the veggies, but that's it. I was not a big pot roast fan, and now I look forward to making this once or so a month. Thanks.
