Swedish Pot Roast

"A different sort of roast. Slightly sweet with an unusual blend of spices. This was one of my son's favorite meals when he was young."

  1. Delicious! What a wonderful mix of flavors. I added potatoes and carrots an hour before it was done. My husband loved it but even more surprisingly, my non-meat loving kid ate her plate clean! Thanks. This will be going in my family faves.
  2. I was a little wary of the spices used in this because I've never had them with beef. But wow! This was reaaly good. The next time I make it, I'll have to triple the recipe and freeze the leftovers. This one is a keeper! Thanx for sharing!
  3. Beautiful! The flavours permeated the meat so well - I can't remember enjoying beef as much as tonight! Thank you for a superb recipe!
  4. FINGER LICKIN' GOOD...this roast was absolutely delicious. Everyone couldn't get enough of it. The roast was melt in your mouth and the flavor was fantastic. Very easy to make...will definitely be a keeper in my family as it has already been requested for another meal!
  5. Have not even had it yet, but I can tell you my house smells so awesome, like Christmas!!! I can't wait to try it. I put the olive oil in my frying pan and browned it, I know that's where all the flavor is going to come from. I will be back to write my review on taste ?


I am a teacher that likes to cook - sometimes. Right now I teach 8th grade English. I have three children: Kyndal 17, Spenser 15, and Sophie who will be 4 in October. We live in Waco, TX and like it. It is just the right size for us - not too big, but big enough to have lots of things to do. <br> <br>I like to cook when I am 'in the mood'and don't have a lot of other things to do. Before Sophie was born I did a lot of cooking ahead. Something that I am way behind on now.
