Classic Pot Roast Recipe

Publisher Photo
After our children grew up and left home, it was hard to cook for only two people. Now I've found a few tricks to make things easier. (Leftovers of this pot roast would be scrumptious in the Italian Beef with Mushrooms recipe at left.)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 27, 2010

I followed this recipe to the T. When I took the dish out of the oven and lifted the lid, I was sorely disappointed. The soup was still a big grey glob - and the vegetables were bathed in plain old tomato sauce. Big whoop. I just put it back in the oven on 375 degrees - hoping that something edible will come out of it in half an hour. I understand the "low and slow" cooking method, but this recipe is just sub par. Try something else.
