    The roast was very tender. The vegatables were great too. I used red and the cheaper potatoes instead of baking. I didn't make the Gremolata.

    Don't skip the gremolata. It makes this dish and really has a great flavor. On it's pwn the pot roast is bland but with the gremolata it is flavorful and nicely balanced.

    I loved this recipe. I followed the recipe for the most part but didn't use potatoes. I also lightly coated the roast with flour. I added sliced cremini mushrooms and chopped celery. I also didn't make the gremolata. I pureed the sauce and veggies with a hand blender. Very tasty!

    I used chuck beef stew meat for this instead of the roast, but followed everything else. I was short on time so I slowed cooked it on high for only 4 hours and it was delicious! I didn't make the gremolata and it didn't really need it. This is definitely a keeper! By the way, the smelled it infused in the house was so yummy.. my husband couldn't wait to eat it!

    This was really good. It might replace my older favorite from CL just for being able to put it all in the crock pot. I did set it to cook on high for 4 hours, but that dried the beef out a little (wasn't home for decreasing temp). Next time I will cook for 3 on high instead. The flavor was nice in the meat, but outstanding on the vegetables. I added quartered baby bella mushrooms to the pot with the other veggies, extra garlic & used dried thyme. Very pleased with this recipe & will go into rotation regularly.

    Thought this had a great flavor. Could eat the potatoes without having to put any sauce or gravy on them. It could have been the actual piece of meat but it was a bit stringy. Made the gremolata just because I had the ingredients but probably wouldn't use it again.
