This is possibly the best pot roast I have ever eaten. It was moist and flavorful. Best yet, it cooks on the stove. I did use a meat thermometer and stopped cooking at 160.

I roasted this at 325 for 2 hours (I had a smaller roast) and it was perfection. Loved the seasonings and the roast was so tender and full of flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
