(2) Visitor Comments:

  • This is a wonderful recipe. I made it for sandwiches and didn't bother with the vegetables. A very easy and fool proof recipe.

  • I have used this recipe for the last 3 years, I usually use whatever cut of roast that is most affordable, and always have great results, although... I do caution never leave out actual celery stalks... it is the key to really tender meat. My step mom can't cook, and she makes this roast to perfection every time as well. Kudos.
