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.

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.
