Although I pretty much followed the recipe, i did cut back on the olive oil, using just about 2 1/2 tablespoons, which was plenty, I thought! I also left out the mushrooms as I really do like 'em, at the most, just slightly cooked! Other than those changes, it was the recipe as given, & we had ourselves a wonderfully flavorful roast dinner! Made for some left-overs, too, which is always a plus in our house!

This was tasty. I cut back on the tomato paste and tomatoes since I had a small roast and used fresh mushrooms. Served with garlic mashed potatoes Made for Evryday is a Holiday Tag

This is delicious! I followed the directions very closely. The only thing I would change is the amount of oil - neither my roast nor the veggies absorbed much of it, so I ended up pouring off at least 3 TB before adding the tomato paste. So next time I will only use about 3 TB to start with. This made a LOT of juice, and I plan to use the remaining roast with the juice and add some broth to make a leftovers minestrone. Served with mashed potatoes as suggested. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I haven't had a pot roast in ages and I never cooked one on my own before, so this recipe was really easy and simple to follow. I had a 2lb roast and I sprinkled 2 of the 4 sides with some salt and pepper before browning as directed. I pretty much followed the entire recipe as stated except I had to make the following changes; dried mushrooms with about 1 cup of fresh sliced mushrooms and the red wine with broth made of 1 cup water and a packet of Herb Ox brand Sodium-Free Beef Broth. I used 12 baby carrots, 1 1/2 onions, and 2 tsp of jarred minced garlic. I don't have Kosher salt so I just used regular. I also added some more pepper to the crock pot before cooking. This made A LOT of "sauce" and all the flavors came together really well and made for a tasty roast. As suggested, I served with garlic mashed potatoes. Bf enjoyed this as well. I did cook this for 4 hours on high and it was perfect, but cooked well done. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag game. Thanks so much for sharing this tasty pot roast recipe!
