The original name of this recipe was Aunt Mary's Pot Roast. I have no idea who Aunt Mary is. She's not my aunt. I don't have an Aunt Mary. Anyway I came across this recipe a while ago and enjoyed it -- very simple, and delicious. Of course, being me, I didn't read the recipe correctly the first time and used Lipton's Onion Soup mix instead of the Italian dressing mix. Never saw any reason to change the receipe back to the original.
