Saucy Sunday Pot Roast

READY IN: 1hr 45mins

I came up with the yummy pot-roast recipe on Sunday evening when I had some red wine to use up and wanted a different roast recipe other than my cream-of-mushroom soup stand-by. My hubby raved and even went back for thirds!

The flavour from the sauce is fantastic and would be wonderful with mashed potatoes. I used a round roast so it was a little tougher but it was still very good. I made this as directed but was a bit short on red wine so I used some white as well. Delicious recipe! Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks Makennasmommy! :)
