Because of the comments on not enough liquid and sauce, I placed my roast in the pan, covered it in the sauce prepared from the recipe, then covered the pan tightly with foil and baked as directed. I then added the veggies and covered it again with foil to bake for the second half, and I never ran out of the sauce, and had enough left to make the gravy. I followed every other part of the recipe exactly, and this was DELICIOUS! I am making it again and I am also passing it on to my extended family, it's just so good! Even my two pickiest eaters gobbled it all up!


I didn't really care for this recipe. It was edible, but not very tasty at all. When I turned the roast after the first hour, I had to add more sauce because it dried up in the pan. I'm sure there may be other people out there who would enjoy this recipe. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them. As a hint, double the sauce and add the second half when adding the vegetables.


To make it no fuss spike the roast with garlic. add 1/4 cup of red wine to liquid mix. brown roast. Put in slow cooker,that way you dont have to worry about enough liquid the slow cooker takes care of its self.add vegies and potaoes one hour before done. walla
