This roast is delicious and melts in your mouth and best of all, it does not have too many calories! I usually serve this with a side of grilled veggies.

  • Very Good

    Instead of cranberry cocktail, I added more liquid (mostly wine) and put in a cup of dried cranberries. Fresh would work as well. Very savoury. I used reg. soy sauce. 12 hours definitely too long--will try 4-5 next time. - 3/16/13

    I was hesitant to try a different roast recipe because I love my roast just the way I've always made it, but this was scrumptious and I will be making it again! - 9/7/10

    Sounds very good will love to try it. The cut of meat depends how long you cook it. - 10/7/15

  • My husband and I enjoyed this tonight for dinner. We just added a salad and it was good. I am beginning to think meat in the crockpot is always overcooked when you cook it all day. At first we thought too many onions. With the gravy it was just right. - 12/4/12
