"Easy, tasted great."

"This is absolutely delicious with or without the dijon! I've made both ways depending on what taste I'm looking for at the time. I used a 1.5 pound roast but love the gravy juices enough I follow the recipe exactly to have extra! I did cut cooking time by about an hour and the meat is tender and flavorful."

"Excellent tasty dinner and very easy to make. I did not add the mustard to the sauce and it was delicious. Will make it again."
