    UPDATE - Made this again last night, made gravy with the juices by adding some cornstarch. I then took the left over gravy, pot roast (shredded) and vegetables and made the most awesome beef barley soup. Just add some water and barley and it's as easy and delicious as it can get! FINALLY!! I have been trying different pot roast recipes for years and they never seem to turn out. DH took one bite and said, "this is the one honey!". I used two 1-1/2 pound chuck roasts, added the herbs at the beginning, made the potatoes separate and thickened the juices with cornstarch for an outstanding gravy. Thanks for sharing!

    I cannot begin to tell you how many pot roast recipes I've tried w/no success......until now. This was fantastic. Moist and full of flavor. Made a couple of changes. Sauted the celery w/the onion and threw in some finely diced garlic. Did not cook potatoes w/the roast and added the herbs at the beginning. This will no be my tried and true roast recipe. Thanks so much.

    Made this today for dinner. But DH turned up at 5.30 p.m. He has a knack of doing so on beef roast days :) (loves his meat) Wanted to have it straight off as the aromas were getting to him and he was hungry too :) He gave it a mighty huge thumbs up and beleive me he has taste (married me didn't he ;)I did not have beef broth :( so added some water and soya and worcester sauces. But rest of the recipe I kept intact. It was really very, very nice, I should actually say very, very MissNezzy!!! ;) Thanks - Fay

    When my family saw that I was making a roast, nobody was thrilled. However, once served, EVERYONE came back for seconds and thirds!! I have been given the "family approval" to make this again. HaHa. I took the suggestion of another reviewer and made a beef barley soup with the leftovers (wasn't much), and the flavor of this roast really pulled through in the soup too! The ONLY thing I did differently from the recipe was I sautéed the onion and celery with 2 cloves finely chopped garlic.

    Awesome. It made the house smell wonderful. My BF ate 3 servings :-) Thank you.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
