    MamaDonna's Note:

    On a the SB diet, phase 3, you try to create meals that are big on flavor. My hubby (not a fan of crockery cooking) told me I needed to write this one down before I forgot how I did it!

      This was a lovely unique way of cooking a roast. Perfect for warm weather as it is lighter than a roast with potatoes and thick gravy. I sliced the beef and poured some of the juices over. Very, very tasty. The prep is quite easy and the flavor is great, can't get much better than that.

      I put this in the crock pot over night because my roast was frozen. By the time I got home from work the next day it was done and falling off the fork. I added a few small potatoes and a little bit more water but otherwise kept to the recipe.

      This was DELICIOUS!! I must admit, this was my maiden voyage with cooking pot roast. I have such fond memories of my grandmother's version that I haven't been able to bring myself to try my hand at it until this recipe... and in the crock pot, it couldn't have been easier! I substituted the Italian dressing mix for onion soup mix, and added an onion. I was also a bit more liberal with the wine (a la Julia Childs). It was fantastic. THANK YOU SO MUCH for an excellent recipe!! My grandmother would be so pleased :-)
