This was really good and very easy to make. It smelled so good as it was cooking. We shredded this and made sandwiches.

This is delicious - hard to believe that just an envelope of salad dressing mix and a piece of beef could taste so good. I used a 2 1/2lb. piece of top round to keep the fat content down, and it was great.
