I have started dredging all my roasts in a bit of flour & seasoning and then browning in olive oil -- definitely helps in keep the meat moist! I'm waiting to see how this all pans out -- a different way to cook a pot-roast! Using fresh mushrooms -- had some which needed to be used; and store brand spaghetti sauce with mushrooms; and minced garlic!

Loved this roast!! So easy! Put it over spaghetti squash for family members watching their carbs and egg noodles for those who aren't. Everyone loved it!!

Easy, with simple ingredients, and leftovers (if there are any) are great, too!

I've made this 3 times. It's a meal guys really tuck into--girls too, by the way! Not the same old roast with carrots and potatoes--something a bit unexpected.

I tried it today. Pretty good but still can't figure out why the beef is dry. Any ideas?

I thought this was tasty, but my husband was not so enthusiastic. Maybe it was the type of spaghetti sauce I used.

This was surprisingly good! I used a chuck roast and shredded it, the red wine added a very nice flavor. Sauce was a little thin.
