This is a wonderful recipe full of flavor. I didn't cook it in the oven but in my Rival 6 quard crockpot on Low for 8 hours. The meat came out tender and the flavor was great. Thanks for posting!

What a wonderful, rich flavor, and the meat was very moist and tender! I threw in a few carrots one hour before the roast was done (they were divine). I also put the veggies and stock through the food mill so they added richness to the gravy and thickened it a bit. Thanks!
