    LisaGay's Note:

    I came across this recipe while reading Nora Ephron's hysterical book, Heartburn. It's peppered with recipes throughout. This one sounds rather strange, as you just dump it all in a pot and shove it in the oven. I was amazed and delighted when it turned out to be delicious. Not my mainstay pot roast, but one I cook when short on prep time, or in the mood for something different. Doesn't get any easier than this! It makes great sandwiches the next day.

      This roast very easy to prepare, so it will become another busy day meal. I served it with potatoes, however next time I will use broad egg noodles. The flavor of the sauce, reminiscent of Ox-tail soup, will be better complimented. The most difficult operation for this roast was the uncorking of the wine. Everyone liked the taste, even the grand daughter, who is still a very picky eater. Thanks for posting it.

      Just about to post this same recipe but mine also includes 2 cups of water. Goes well with cooked egg noodles.

      This is my all-time favorite recipe for guests, because it tastes so good, is so easy to make, and allows you to have a clean and marvelous smelling kitchen when your guests arrive - at which time you can recruit them into the dreary tasks like peeling potatoes :-)
