Wonderful and easy! I used a can of beef broth instead of the water (I like a little extra joice) and sprinkled some beef bouillon and garlic powder on top of the roast.
Yummy and easy!! I considered adding some garlic, but didn't. Next time-- maybe. Basic recipe that results in great comfort food. Reminds me of when my mom would make a roast when I was growing up.
We liked this roast. I was nervous about the amount of water, so I did add a bit extra and it did make it taste a little more diluted. I'll make it again and follow the 1/2 cup water direction. We like garlic, so I added some garlic powder and some ground white pepper.
