Review This Recipe
This is easy to make. I was not sure I understood instructions about cutting slits and putting the carrots and bacon in "the hole". I wasn't sure if this was a design like a spoke on a wheel or if it was just functional. I used a 6lb roast and it came out slightly overcooked. Please adjust the time of cooking when doing yours. I browned my roast on the grill before baking in the oven instead of using a Dutch oven.
The roast came out tasty and I would for sure make this again
