      This was a really good roast recipe, but I was not that fond of the garlic in the meat. My husband on the other hand loved it.

      Excellent! I made a few modifications to suit dietary restrictions in our family, but the general method refined by Uncle Bill cannot be beat. The gravy is just wonderful, and the meat exceedingly tender. I will make all slow cooker pot roasts this way from now on.

      Delicious! I did cook it longer like other reviewers, but not because I read them, because I always cook my roasts all day in the crock pot. Everything was done perfectly! It's a little more work than I usually put into a roast, but well worth it! Thanks!
