      I only had a two pound roast. I kept all the ingredients the same. I did add a pound bag of carrots and a bunch of small potatoes. I cooked mine on low for seven hours. For some reason I did not care for the italian seasoning in this. I would either decrease it next time or just not use it. I liked the sauce with the roast but not with the vegetables. Made as a pressie for Aus/NZ swap.
