Excellent roast. I have been making pot roast with the onion soup for ages but for some reason I haven't usually added the potato's and carrots to th pot before. The gravy is very good and vanished over the squashed potato's on the plates. The roast is very tender and tasty, it's absolutly worth making and I do recommend it.
