    It turned out great. I substituted bone broth instead of beef stock and it came out a little more watery than described, but the taste was awesome. We’ll be adding this to the rotation for sure.

    I have made many pot roasts over the years and this was BY FAR the absolutely best ever! Everything was delicious and all the veggies still had their own flavor. Meat was amazingly tender, and the gravy was delish!

    Turned out great. Browning the onions and carrots added some nice additional flavor.

    I absolutely love this recipe. I make according to directions and it’s perfect and so flavorful. I would be surprised if I ever used another recipe. Game changer not to add the potatoes. She right about them getting grainy.

    Flavor was nice. I used a low end Cabernet with the beef stock. Nice and silky mouth feel. Added about a half a teaspoon of Worcestershire and it seemed to fit my goals pretty well. I’m about to make some duchess potatoes to accompany the roast. I would keep this recipe to make it again. I was tired of the big chunky flavor leeching potatoes always present in pot roast dishes.

    This turned out great, wouldn't change a thing. I used a cast iron dutch oven and it was falling apart. Will definitely make again.

    Very yummy! I used a smaller roast. It wasn’t as tender as it could have been, but that may have been because of the size.

    The perfect, classic pot roast! Chose because of similarity to recipe I have used for years. Her extra tips and twists resulted in a perfect pot roast. My only alteration was that I cooked in slow cooker on low for ten hours after caramelizing/browning steps. The juice is incredible!

    Pot roast was excellent, so flavourful. Sliced the onions instead of quartering them, put them under the roast and made a lovely onion gravy. I had a 3 1/2 pound blade roast, still fairly frozen in the middle. It took almost 5 hours and I increased the temp to 325 in the last hour. Was totally worth it.

    This recipe was delicious. This is the first time, a roast I cooked turned out the way I imagined it should! I kind of modified the recipe my using a cooking bag- so I wouldn't have to baste. It was moist and flavorful. The left overs were all gone by the next day!
