Thank you Virginia for an easy and delicious recipe!! I used fresh garlic in this and doubled the mushrooms. The gravy was exceptionally good! I let it cook in the oven for about 4 hours, at 325*. It was moist and tender. Will make this again!

I didn't have onion/mushroom so just used the onion. Also, did not have sweet sherry, so used merlot and added a couple of bay leaf. It was great!!! Thanks for the great recipe!!

It was the best chuck roast I've ever had. My husband loved it and my children, who normally would not eat anything like a roast, liked it. White vinegar is listed as an ingredient, however, there is no mention of it in the directions. I stirred it in with the soup mix, sherry, and coffee. I assume that was correct because it sure was good!
