    Southern Lady's Note:

    If you want a delicious surprise away from the basic roast recipes, try this one. I call this upscaled home cooking. The irresistible dill gravy is a HIT and made the meal. Cook on stove top or use crock pot. Pour gravy over each slice of beef and the veggies, then use crusty bread to soak up the leftover good!

      I made this yesterday with a top sirloin roast which I think affected cooking time as my roast really fell apart quite a bit. I also chose to do this in the crockpot as I was going to be out most of the day. The flavor of the sauce was very good but my veggies were slightly undercooked, despite having them in longer than the recommended time. This was most likely user error though because I just threw them on top instead of removing the roast and putting them under the meat. All in all it was very tasty, though I will use a little more salt next time. Thanks Southern Lady for the post!
