    I made this recipe as written however I skipped the lemon peel as recommended by other reviewers. The meat was moist and the whole meal was delicious. Thanks for sharing.

    The whole family liked this very much. Given the other reviews, I skipped the lemon, didn't have it anyway. I didn't have time to sear the roast, just plopped it in the pot. Cooked on high for 4 hours. Next time I will score the top of the roast and really smear the garlic in there. I took the roast and veggies out of the pot and transferred the au jus to a saucepan and thickened it a bit. Very good.
