We had a venison roast to try and I looked at all the recipes and this looked really yummy. I only had a 2.25 lb roast, but used the same amounts except for 4 carrots and added potatoes. I cooked (by necessity - we didn't get home on time) for 2 hours and it should have probably been 1 1/2 or so. It was still good, not tough, just needed the sauce. DH and I really liked it; kids weren't fond of it, but liked the sauce. This would be great with beef roast! Thanks!
