    Molidol's Note:

    I found a version of this recipe on the web somewhere years ago. My husband wanted a roast with a brown sauce, not the normal tomato base. When I recently made this he loved it. I made some adjustments to it to suite my husbands picky…err… I mean discerning taste. This recipe is more like a base because there is so much you could do to make this your own. I bet this would be great in the crockpot as well!

      very good, hubby really liked it. he loves roasts but i can never find one that doesn't have tomatoes in it. this was really good and the gravy was good too. i used a pinot grigio from a local winery, hubby drank all the riesling, and was very tasty. i liked the mildness of the white as opposed to a red. thanks!

      This was a great recipe. I used all of the ingredients except carrots and cut the wine in half. (My husband doesn't care for the taste.) After 4 and a half hours, the roast was falling apart tender. My kids even came back for seconds. They never do that! Thank you Molidol for a fantastic roast. Picture are coming.
