      WOW! This pot roast was the best! I did not use a beef chuck roast, but a top round, which is usually tougher. But the tomato juice actually tenderizes the meat and it still melted in our mouths. I doubled the basil, salt, pepper and tomato juice; I added one extra bay leaf. This was for extra juice/gravy. I followed steps 1-3, then transferred it into the crockpot and cooked on high for 8 hours. I served this over mashed potatoes, I didn't add the white potatoes while cooking. I also used baby carrots. It smelled and tasted so wonderful at my house yesterday that my mom asked for the recipe and made it for her dinner today. And when I warmed up my leftovers in the microwave tonight at work, my co-workers asked, "what are you eating that smells so wonderful?" Thanks for a recipe that is a definite keeper!

      Very good pot roast. My husband usually gets out the ketchup bottle when I make potroast, but didn't with this one. I used two 5.5 oz. cans V-8 juice because that's what I had, but otherwise followed it exactly. Great meal-in-a-pot.

      WOW - was this good! I used 3 or 4 pound top round roast and browned it per directions on top of the stove in my large dutch oven. I put the carrots and potatoes and onions in, stirred an 8oz. can of tomato sauce into 2c. water, added 1/2t. more of each of the spices, poured it over the roast and into the oven it went. I roasted it at 350 degrees for 3 1/2 - 4 hours - it was fall-apart tender and the flavor from the bay leaves (I left them at 3) and the basil was very good. I thickened the juices to serve along side and we loved it. A definite keeper I'll make again!
