Yum! I made this as directed, except that I also added some potatoes, baby carrots, and celery to the crockpot. Smelled good, tasted great, and I ended up with a full meal on the table in minutes when it was done. Thanks Lainey for sharing. Made for ZWT8 - Great Britain.
Delicious and couldn't be easier or more versatile! This was so easy to put together, and smelled wonderful while it was cooking in the crockpot. I served it very simply with mashed potatoes, but it could go over noodles or rice, or in a pot pie as well ( I may use the leftovers that way!) Veggies could be added to make a delicious stew too! A real winner! Made for ZWT8
Perfectly simple dinner to prepare without a lot of preparation which is a huge benefit. The roast was fork tender. The only little change was I added a bit of garlic seasoning to the mix just because we love that flavor. Served with brown rice and veggie mix on the side and it was perfect! Thanks for a great recipe. Tagged in Gimme 5 game.
