This was REALLY GOOD! I omitted the corn (just a personal preference). This was one of the best things I have ever made! The 'gravy' was really good and everyone raved about it. I will surely add this recipe to my collection. Thanks for posting!

It had a great taste and was very easy to make..... I did add carrots, for someone thought they could not live without them. I well be making this one again.

Excellent! Great taste. Best roast beef I have ever made. I have put this recipe in my menu rotation. Takes a little more time to prepare than I had estimated. Thanks

Absolutely delicious; it worked beautifully with a large top round steak, and reduced the initial cooking time by half an hour. I made mine with winter squash pieces instead of sweet potato, and I skipped the corn since my Dutch oven is not large. Served with crusty bread and a side of asparagus.
