It seems to have turned out okay. The flavor is very subtle and possibly weak, but it is there. The roast is falling apart now, mmm. The potatoes and carrots are holding their form but very soft.
I made this for my co-worker and his wife. They had their baby yesterday (last night) so I figured they would appreciate a meal that was already prepared and ready to be eaten (plus spices? Heh). Once I hear back from them I'll be dropping it off at their place.
