    I loved this recipe. I used a dutch oven and baked it instead at 300F for about 3 hours and when it was done the meat just fell apart and was so tender.

    Very good results! I love using beer in pot roast as you get such a tender meat and nice flavor. The mushroom soup adds a nice creamy taste to the broth!

    Excellent flavor. I also made it in the crock pot after searing the meat and cooking the veggies in oil. The gravy was wonderful on mashed potatoes!
