Source: Sandra Lee - Semi Homemade Cooking!! This recipe is unbelievably easy and the results are delicious!! My husband eats the sauce with a spoon!! NOTE: This recipe says to brown the roast...I have skipped this step due to lack of time and the roast still turned out juicy & fork-tender!

Wonderful flavored sauce! Just before serving I thicken the sauce with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons of water. I served it over spaghetti noodles. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Great recipe!!! Prepared as a participant in the May 2008 Aus/NZ Swap #16 Event.
