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.

My first making a pot roast and I absolutely loved this recipe. I added celery and substituted diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce on accident, but actually turned out really good. Just wish I had added more seasoning to the veggies, but will definitely make again!

Boneless short ribs will give you a nicer result than chuck roast.

Oh and fresh red onions and fresh bell peppers. Nothing canned or dried in my recipe... makes a huge difference! Vegetable stock instead of the powdered soup mix. Just a little seasoned salt and a mixed ground pepper blend to taste.
