This is really basic, but turns out well every time. I'm sure all of the readers can add their own touches to make it their own. I think the Franco American brand gravies are now Campbell's.

My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I cooked it on HIGH for 5 hours it was perfectly tender and delicious. I left out the mushrooms as we don't care for them. Thank you.
