    Rita D.'s Note:

    This recipe was in an old cookbook that I have misplaced. Thankfully, my sister saved her handwritten copy and I am now able to save my recipe on here. We have prepared many meals with this recipe, and sometimes we even throw in some potatoes and carrots to make a scrumptious one pot meal. Hope you enjoy it as much as we all do. I have included the first hour of marinating at room temperature as prep time.

      Wow, this was a fantastic and tender roast, and so easy to prepare. I am glad I gave this recipe a try. I only wish I had thought to add a few quartered potatoes, because I think the juice that accumulates in the pot would have flavored the potatoes quite well. But we did have the cooked mushrooms and onions, which made for a great vegetable side dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Rita D. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.
