"I've been making this roast for years and it's perfect for a Sunday meal and for those busy weeknights. It is comfort food at its best and is REALLY GOOD and I have turned more people to this recipe than I can count! It is not an original creation of mine, but I was surprised that it wasn't on this site seeing that it is on other sites. I'm placing it here to "spread-the-word" for this most successful dish."

10 Stars for this. Lived up to it’s name. Meat was fall apart fork tender and had so much flavor. I made as written, cooking vegies separately. No reason to mess with perfection.

Delicious! I added potatoes and carrots in the last few hours of cooking for a wonderful meal! Made as directed without the variations. Thanks for sharing!

Definitely delicious! I usually place carrots, onions and potatoes in with my roasts, but I was out for the afternoon visiting a sick friend. When I walked in the house, I was over-taken by the most wonderful aroma wafting through the air. This roast just cries out for a mound of mashed potatoes or rice and that's just what I did. I made a big batch of mashed potatoes, but rice would be wonderful too. Soooo good and soooo easy to make.

Such a yummy roast. I've been making this roast for years and found your version and just had to try it. I added some potatoes, carrots, celery, and onion to the crock pot too so that I ended up with a whole meal while I made the gravy. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, ForeverMama.
