    Easy to make, falls apart (just like a roast should) and makes a fabalous gravy (which I'll be turning into a French Onion soup). Definitely a keeper! - 1/28/10

    Delicious! I didn't have soy sauce or ginger so I used Worcestershire sauce and it turned out great. I simmered it on the stove as directed and the roast was tasty and fell apart easily. Everyone enjoyed this for dinner, as well as our kids. Thanks. - 4/4/08

    I thought this was ok. I did add more seasoning (italian seasoning, garlic powder, season salt). My mom and husband thought it was pretty good. - 1/20/08
