this turned out well. Lots of gravy. I put the veggies in about 2 hours later than meat and on top. I didn't want them to get too mushy. I also added minced garlic for flavor and seared meat in EVOL.

This is now my standard pot roast recipe. I use only one can of tomato sauce, and as with most crockpot recipes, I added the vegetables halfway through the cooking process. It is excellent and easy!

Everything was cooked nicely but I wasn't crazy about the tomato base. I felt that it made everything else taste very bland even though I added extra spice based on other comments. Good but not great.

Pot roast was tender, but overall rather bland tasting. Could have used some spice and maybe use stewed tomatoes in place of tomato sauce.

I usually don't like gravy from the crockpot. This was excellent! The only thing extra I added was onions cut into chunks. My husband loved this recipe. We got two meals from this.

Your carrots and potatoes will be way overdone with this recipe. Add the veggies at the half way point instead.
