    Barbs Miller's Note:

    Easy pot roast that makes it's own gravy. To me, the gravy is the best part. This can also be done in a crock pot beautifully - great for the busy mom! Roast does cook down and is well done.

      This is a fabulous recipe. Much better than how I was making roast boiling on the stove. My hubby had it reheated because of working late and he still thought it was delicious, will become a family favorite I am sure!!

      Have been making this recipe for over five years now and it is excellent. The only problem I have with it is that it is fairly high in sodium. Here is a hint for all you people that want to cut back on your salt intake. I use a low salt beef gravy or broth mix, Victorian Epicure has both, then add pepper, garlic powder and onion flakes and whatever other no salt spice you want, with the low sodium mushroom soup. It is still very tasty but not so salty.
