My family loves roast beef so I kept messing around with my own recipe until I came up with this one. My family says 'no more' trying to make the perfect roast. This apparently is. Serve with mashed potatoes and use the juices for gravy.

Used bottom round steak and decided to use the slow cooker diced to a large food bite. I did everything as the recipe calls for....but add extra slices of raw pepper at the end otherwise it will turn to mush....added some corn starch to make a great gravy too! Added about a 1/2 cup of salsa and that made all the difference! Read More

This was possibly the worst pot roast I've ever eaten. In Italy we call this "bollito" which means "boiled" and we make it with a cheaper cut of meat potatoes carrots and then use the broth for soup. This dish tasted funny because of the peppers and the expensive cut of meat I used was wasted here:-( Read More

I think they said no more because this was horrible too salty and way to much peppers. Will try other recipes. Read More

Very poor recipe. It was not edible. We wasted money on the meat and didn't understand why this type was selected. Don't even consider this one. Read More
