    Marie's Note:

    A very different way to serve pot roast - with a delicious garlic cream sauce. Cook the beef, slice and combine with the sauce, then bake when needed. A wonderful dish for guests and sooooo good!

      Delicious! We used the pan drippings from cooking the roast to make a brown gravy to go over mashed potatoes - maybe overkill with a cream sauce already a part of the meal, but it was tasty business! Green peas were our vegetable, and they were unbelievable rolled around in the garlicky cream sauce. It will definitely be just a once-in-a-while meal, but one we'll look forward to!

      Thank you for a fantastic recipe. I have made this twice now, it is so good. The beef becomes so tender, and the sauce is delicious. This is definitely company quality. I had a dinner party recently and served this to my guests - they really enjoyed it. I loved the fact that I could prepare this in the morning, and when my company arrived I just popped it in the oven, and relaxed with my guests. Thanks again for a wonderful recipe.
