"Planning to make this this week (probably Wednesday 10/1613), will be using meat for making soup. Although my husband isn't crazy over soup (he says it's not really filling), cooking it in crock opot to ensure tenderness, then transferring to Dutch Oven, finishing it up with homemade dumplings may just be the ticket!!

"This was so good! I was planning on using the beef in a different recipe, but once I tasted it, I thought it was too good so we just ate it as it was. This is definitely my go-to roast recipe now."
