This recipe is great! I can't believe no one has reviewed it. Not only is it delicious, it's gluten free for hubby, easy as heck, and you have almost no dishes to wash. A fork, a knife, a cutting board, and a measuring cup. And you get to skip the whole step of browning the roast first. Who likes to stand in front of a hot stove frying a big hunk of meat? Thanks for posting! Additional info: this recipe is gluten free if you use a gluten free alternative flour such as white rice flour to sprinkle into the cooking bag.
