Wow! this was fabulous! I love eye of round roast and was looking for something different. Will definitely be making this often. Only changes I made was I used about 3 cloves of garlic and browned the roast in a frying pan, and baked in a corning ware covered dish. The flavor of the juice was amazing, the meat was so tender it almost fell apart. My husband and kids loved it! Served with rice, and the juice was great drizzled on the rice. Thank you for this yummy recipe!

This is the ultimate roast. I had absolutely no complaints. Best I have ever had. I cooked my 4 lb roast for 4 hours in a cast iron dutch oven at 300 degrees. It fell apart, when trying to slice it, definitely a keeper. Can't wait to make it for company. Great job, melissa. Oh yeah! Loved the sauce. Served it over white rice.

I knew we'd like this recipe but was surprised at the rave reviews it received! My husband said, "Make sure you give it 5 stars!" and he doesn't hand those out very often. I used the leftover meat and sauce to make some vegetable noodle soup and he enjoyed that as well. I didn't have a dutch oven so I browned the roast in a frying pan and then placed everything in a large casserole dish with a lid. It worked fine. My only regret is that I didn't check to see if it was done before 3 hours because I think I could have taken it out sooner. Other than that, I followed the recipe to the letter and we really enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing such a unique, tasty way to fix roast!

Two of my husband's favorite things are root beer and pot roast, so this dish was high on my list of things to try. It definitely met our expectations. The root beer and chili sauce combo has a subtle spicy-sweet taste we all liked. I made a few changes. I skipped the browning, left the salt out of the sauce (though I did salt the meat) and cooked the roast in the crockpot. Thanks, Melissa!

maybe I expected too much with the root beer but seemed like you really did not taste much but the chili sauce. Kind of a real sweet version bar b que thing. It was just okay. Thanks tho!

The flavor of this recipe was very good, although I think next time I will use a more tender cut of beef. Also, I did this in the crockpot, and I don't think it came out as well as it would have if done in the oven. I will try this recipe again and will update my review. Thanks for posting! -M =)
