YUM!! Used 4 carrots and 4 Potatoes because my crock-pot ran out of room. Used a Shoulder Roast, started cooking at noon, took out 9pm.

After reading this recipe I thought yum then my next thought was I go to bed at nine, eat at 6:30, 22 hours in the crock pot? Plus I wanted to eat it tonight! I get up with my husband at five and I am hoping by starting it early enough on high for a few hours and then cooking the rest of the way on low it will be good. That will be a little over 12 hours. The only thing I did different was added vegetable broth in place of the water and salt. All day the aroma was killing us, it smelled so good. I left it on high until noon and then I turned it to low, and it was done by 5pm. The flavor was incredible…my husband doesn’t want me to cook a roast any other way but this recipe from now on. Your stars are endless… Thank you for a Superb recipe!!!

I thought this was great! My husband did not like something, about it, but could not tell me what. However, I am reviewing it and I would make this again. The meat was wonderfully tender and flavorful, so it is all personal preference. Thank you for posting it. ZWT3
