THE most moist roast I've ever made. Everyone loved it!

I made this in the oven bag with a 2 3/4 lb. chuck roast. Unfortunately, I forgot to adjust the time correctly and baking for 2 hours was too long and the meat was a little dry. But the veggies were nice and soft with nice flavor. Will definitely make this again. Would also like to try it in the crockpot.

I cooked the roast and vegetables in a oven bag that was held in a 13 x 9 pan. This was the best roast I have ever made!! This recipe is a keeper!! I put a whole packet of Lipton Onion Soup Mix in and only 1 medium onion chopped.

Miss Nikki, thanks for the advice. I had planned on cooking 8 hours on low but due to time had to go with 6 on high.

This was very good. I put it in the crockpot for 6 hours on high. For the gravy I mixed some cornstarch and water and added them to the boiling broth along with some beef boullion. Very good.
