I am not sure if I qualify for rating this because I made several changes to the recipe. First, I converted the recipe for crock pot cooking. Next, I left out the wine because my husband doesn't consume acoholic beverages. I increased the salad dressing to 1/3 cup and reduced the garlic to 2 heaping teaspoons. I also added a stalk of celery cut into 1/2 inch slices. I do recommend this recipe and will definitely make it again.
This pot roast is so yummy:) It was fall apart tender and just delicious! I think it'd be great with adding mushrooms in, or any veggie you prefer. Also next time I might add a couple boullion cubes to the liquid to make it a bit richer and for a lil saltyness(just personal preference). This will definitely be made again, and was loved by all, thanks for sharing! I made this for PAC 2007 :)

Luckily, I have a family that will try anything and has eclectic tastes. I prefer recipes that are fast, but will occasionally create ones with a little more prep time. However, most of my recipes are quick and easy. I don't post anything that isn't 'Knock your socks off' delicious. Enjoy!
