With a few modifications based on other reviewers suggestions, this recipe was one of the best I have made from Allrecipes (and I've been a member for over four years). I seasoned the roast generously with Spike and garlic pepper before searing, and also placed the sweet potatoes on top of the roast instead of underneath (the onions and garlic were kept on the bottom of the crock, though). I made slits and shoved in some garlic cloves, crocked it for 8 hours on low, and it was absolutely perfect: a handsome, falling apart, no-knife needed roast. The sweet pototoes also came out the right consistency. This will be one of my new favorites.

This was a very good recipe! I only used 3 cloves of garlic and it was still very flavorful. I put in two onions instead of one. The meat was very tender. The sweet potatoes were very tender, NOT mushy and tasted wonderful. I had leftovers and when reheated in the saved broth in a saucepan was just as good as the first day it was made. I put the leftover meat in a low oven wraped in foil for a short time and it was still mosit and tender. My husband loved this and said he definitely wants this as a "make again" recipe. One hint, if you open the lid even just one time before the minimum cooking time, you loose 1 to 1/2 hrs. of cooking time, which means you have to add that additional loss of time to your expected time done.

I had to try this because I couldn't imagine sweet potatoes with onions and garlic. I trimmed all the fat off the roast and seasoned it with seasoned salt and garlic pepper prior to searing. I sliced one clove of garlic and placed the slivers in slits cut in the roast. Since I knew I would be gone for 9 hours instead of 6, I cut the sweet potatoes into large chunks and put them on top of the roast (I used 2 large onions and the garlic to line the crock pot). The potatoes were slighty soft, but not mushy. The flavor of the whole dish was superb. My mom and husband both agreed that this was a keeper!
