A wonderful, rich and hearty dish to serve with pride to your family and guests! I left out the bell pepper, placed whole baby carrots around the roast to serve with the sliced onions. My broth was one envelope of onion soup mix, water, 4 ounces of tomato sauce, all the seasoning (cut the salt in half) and one tablespoon of butter instead of the chicken fat. Wow, this is a dish I will serve again and again. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
