    I find that cooking pot roast in a heavy dutch oven is the most convenient method. I brown the meat first then bake it at 250 deg for 8 hours or until fork tender. If you use a crock pot you have to use another pot to brown the meat.

    My other half had been asking for a pot roast for some time now, & I finally satisfied him with your recipe! I followed the recipe as well as the tips from other reviewers about adding a few potatoes & carrots to the mix, & it turned out great! Leftovers were well received, too! Definitely something I'd make again! Thanks so much for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

    This roast smelled absolutely fabulous and it was delicious. I used a top sirloin roast instead but other than that, followed the recipe exactly. My guests thought it was excellent.Although I took a photo of it in the crockpot, I had meant to take a photo after I cut and plated it, but I forgot to do it. Now there isn't enough left to take a photo of. Great recipe so try it, you'll like it. Made for PAC 2011. Thx Nikki.

    This was very good! So tender! I also added potatoes and carrots. Leftovers will be used for tacos this weekend for the Super Bowl! Made for Make My Recipe Tag Game 2011.
