I made this for dinner tonight, and it turned out pretty good. I am only giving it three stars for a number of reasons. In response to one of the previous reviews, I checked the meat at about 100 minutes and it was done. I wish I had checked it ten minutes earlier. I think it must have something to do with the cut, as this bottom round roast was leaner than others I have prepared. I consider myself a beginner, and can't really speak as to why one piece of meat cooks differently from another, but it seems to need to be paid attention to. With regards to the veggies, I added them at 75 minutes, and at the lowest simmer setting they needed their 40ish minutes, nestled around the roast as they were. Also, I added seasonings to the cooking liquid... garlic, bay leaves, celery salt, dried smashed mushrooms, etc., and I think without the additional flavors, this meal might have been bland for our taste. Overall, this is a great start to a yummy pot roast, but not reliable as is.
