yes, after this effort, this is a pretty bland dish. i love having all the vegetables, but they overwhelm a 3 lb roast. somehow just not very tasty.
This is my favorite beef recipe. All the veggies make the pot roast more interesting & the gravy always turns out great.
If you took out the mushrooms and tomatoes and served it with a glass of milk it was basically my parents pot roast, which is fine for a basic meal. Even with the tomatoes and mushrooms it was not as flavorful as I would have liked. I would say this is a good family meal, if you don't mind bland food.
