    Super delish and easy to make. It does have quite a powerful garlic taste which surprised me - but it's yummy! I also added mushrooms as another review suggested.

    The best pot roast I've ever made. As a stay-at-home momwithtwo little girls, I love the fast prep and easy cooking, and it is absolutely delicious! I use cabernet and let the water come from the veggies... Comes out perfect every time!

    Made this tonight but with regular mash potatoes. Used Cab instead of water and kept adding along the way. Also added a couple tablespoons of brown sugar. Turned out great. The way it makes your kitchen smell is amazing. Love all things slow cooked.

    wow...that's a pretty unhealthy mashed potatoes. I use 2% milk half and half instead of the cream. for every large russet potato, I use 1 tsp of vegetable spread. That way, if you want to add some cheese to it, it's not over the top in calories and fat. I add whatever leftover cheese I have on hand - quarter cup for every 1 large russet potato.. I boil the potatoes in chicken stock, or simply add half a stock cube into my water. really adds flavour!

    I have made this several times and every time my husband always wants me to make it again. This is the only pot roast he likes now. Perfect every time!

    This was a wondreful and easy recipe. The directions mention 20 cloves of garlic and the ingredients list 10 cloves of garlic. I used 12 and it was perfect. Also, I used wine instrad of water and doubled the volume.

    I don't believe you need to completely cover the roast in the crock pot. Let us know how it turns out, though, because that's my preferred method of doing roasts!
