    2ChinaGirls's Note:

    A slow-cooked pot roast recipe my mother found over 40 years ago at a local grocery store. Super fast and easy to throw together and makes the house smell wonderful as it slowly simmers on the stove top. I've tried it in the crock pot and it just doesn't turn out as well!

      Toooo gooood! The only change I made was to leave out the mushrooms (allergy!). The seasoning was right on the money. Thnx for sharing your recipe, 2ChinaGirls. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!
