  • In large bowl combine tomatoes, pizza sauce, cheese, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, oregano, and pepper. Pour over meat. Cover and simmer over medium heat for 2 hours, turning meat each half hour.

  • Remove meat from pan, and cool slightly. Skim fat from pan juices. Measure juices, and add enough water to make 6 cups liquid. Return liquid to Dutch oven. Blend cornstarch and 3 tablespoons cold water; stir into pan juices. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly.

  • Slice meat thinly against the grain. Return meat to pot, and add mushrooms. Simmer for 30 minutes longer.

  • Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until done. Drain. To serve, place meat slices over hot noodles, and pour some sauce over. Pass remaining sauce.

I only had a few items in my pantry and went in search of something I could make with crushed tomatoes and a pot roast... well this recipe made it to the top of the list because it sounded so darned good. Well, not only did it satisfy the ingredient search, but the tummies of me, my fiance and his hard-to-please-teenager son. If a 15-year-old asks for you to make it again, you know it was a hit! So, thanks for this recipe. I altered this to a crock-pot version, and skipped the corn starch phase. By making it in the crock pot, it's now a quick and easy meal and it's ready when everyone is back from work. I also served it more like a pot roast and served it with a side dish of elbow macaroni and used the sauce from the crock pot as it's gravy and then had some hard italian bread and it was totally yummy!

This took way too much time for the outcome. I didn't like it at all and neither did my husband. Wouldn't bother making it again. Read More

I put a 3.75 pound chuck roast in a slow cooker and cooked it for 2 1/2 hours on high and 2 hours on low. It was very tender and soooo delicious! I also made spaghetti with the left overs and it was great. I also took slices of the roast, put them on kaiser rolls, and melted slices of mozzarella in the oven. Awesome leftovers! Will be making this again when I have a busy day and will probably cook it for 8 hours on low next time. Read More

Definitely a make-again. Slicing up the cooked meat and returning it to the pot is key. I served it with mashed potatoes and veggies instead of noodles. Read More

My husband loved this! It had a great taste. I skipped the cornstarch phase and it was still very good. Read More

Made in in my crock pot. Came out a little more liquidy than I would like. Next time I'll be more diligent about the corn starch. Read More

Outstanding! I followed the recipe exactly except I used a large can of tomatoes and I cooked it in the crock pot. The flavor was really good. I think the Worcestershire sauce makes it. I saved the extra sauce to use for spaghetti, and I can't wait to try that. Read More

Excellent just as written. Next time I may add some diced carrot with the mushrooms. Whole family enjoyed it and it's a good choice for cheap beef. Read More
