    This is a pot roast recipe that I came up with years ago when I was wanting to do something a little bit different with my roast.

      This is nearly the identical recipe I made for my mother one Mom's Day, except it called for Beefy-onion soup mix. To die for! We served it with roasted red potatoes and were in heaven. I highly recommend trying this.

      This is a fantastic recipe. I cooked it in my slow cooker on low for 8 hours. I browned the roast first but this isn't necessary if time doesn't permit. I love red wine as a base for the broth.

      This was a really good roast. I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot for 7hrs ,and then I had a very tender roast. The only thing I didn't add was the mushrooms ,but I think next time I will try them. Thanks Mystergirl for such a delightful and easy main course.
