Finally I found a roast recipe that my husband LOVES! He couldn't stop raving over it. I used more of the seasoning than it called for, and when I was done I have a wonderful gravy for the mashed potatoes. AWESOME!!

I was very pleased with this recipe. It is easy to put together. My 2 1/2 pound roast cooked for about 3 hours and was very tender. The gravy was thick enough at the end that I did not need to do anything more to it. It was a lovely, dark brown color.

My husband loved this roast. I added potatoes and carrots in the last hour of cooking. It made a lot of gravy, which I ended up thickening. I didn't care as much for the flavor of the gravy as I'd hoped, but it was still good. Thanks for sharing!
