This is a wonderful pot roast for the fall and winter time. It is one of the many ways I love to make a pot roast. Try it in on a chilly day with some garlic mashed potatoes and some spiced apple cider.

This is very good. My family loved it. We plan on having this again as soon as possible. I think this would be great to have as a dinner a couple nights before Thanksgiving. It would be a fine change to have for the holidays. I plan to do just that myself.
