Swiss Pot Roast Recipe

My family loves the taste of this tender roast. I love the fact that it's so easy to prepare—it even makes its own gravy. The house smells wonderful when this hearty main dish is cooking, so I'm apt to hear the question, 'How long until dinner?'—Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
