We adore this roast. The next day throw the meat, vegetables & gravy into a pot. Add a can of beef broth simmer. Thicken to a desired consistency and you have a wonderful stew the next day.

BAMM!!! This was a winner in my house. The only things I strayed from was the parsnips (had none), added a couple bay leaves, garlic cloves (had none, used garlic powder) and instead of flour for gravy I used "Carne Guisada Season" by Fiesta Company out of San Atoneo, TX. It gave it a nice kick.
Great pot roast! I didn't have the ingredients for my usual roast, but this came out moist and tasty. The only thing I changed was using a three lb roast (three hour cooking time), and only put half a clove in the ten slits. Thanks for the recipe!
I left out some of the veggies because I didn't have them on hand, but this is a great recipe. I've made it several times now.
