Full of great taste! The meat was extra tender and delicious. I made it with carrots, potatoes and butternut squash. We will have this again and again!

My family woofed this down like no tomorrow! The meat was tender and delicious and the vegetables were cooked just right and tasted so good. This is so easy to make that it will be a regular with us, except during the hot weather when we grill out most of the time.

WOW! We loved this pot roast recipe! I omitted the potatoes as DH has been ordered by his MD to remove them from his diet. I replaced them with butternut squash cubes. I also used a beef brisket that weighed more than suggested, but I just left it in the oven an additional 30 minutes. Added extra carrots, onions and mushrooms. I also put the vegetables into the brew after the first hour by mistake, but they were yummy anyway. It would have been nice to have served this with some crusty bread too. Made for Billboard tag.
