The gravy for this dish was very good. However, I found that after following the directions to a tee the beef turned out very tough. Nobody really ate it. I hear that sometimes people can get a 'bad cut' of this meat so I am not quite ready to point my finger at this recipe. Maybe I will try it again sometime with a less expensive roast.
