I didn't have any fresh herbs so I used all dried ones. It was still very good. Since I was just making a small piece of meat for myself I just guessed at the amounts of seasonings. This will be a wonderful gravy for any choice of beef.
This was awesome - I actually used a cubed venison round steak - and added an additional 1/2 cup red wine and 1/2 cup beef broth and 1/2 cup water to make a little more gravy at the very end (it had cooked down).
This was really easy and good. I wasn't able to use fresh herbs this time, used dried and it still tasted yummy. Thanks for posting.
Everyone LOVED this! My two year old, who doesn't normally like beef, kept asking for more and trying to grab at everyone else's!
We loved this roast! I didnt have fresh herbs so I used dried. My cooking time was about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes longer than the recipe but well worth the little bit of waiting time. I simmered and browned some canned sliced carrots in a bit of the gravy, so good! Thank you Irmgard, this is a definite keeper!
My Husband usually does not like stew like dishes but this He loved! I cooked it for the amount called for in the original recipe, then I sliced it and returned it to the pot along with baby carrots potatoes and peas it is absolutly delish. Hubby asked for leftovers the next day....that never happens.
This is a keeper for sure. Expected to have leftovers for sandwiches, but hubby and I ended up pigging out on the whole roast! I do have some remaining gravy that I will make something else out of it. Thanks for such a good recipe.
this is excellant i have made this several times it is delish,you don't have to change anything,i have used fresh and dried herbs both are great
Very good! To die for gravy! A great way to cook a pot roast if you don't want to turn the oven on or don't have a crockpot. I made the recipe as directed except for using less oil and doubling the flour. Our roast was a bit tough and next time I would cook it for at least 2 hours. The next day, I cut up the leftover meat and cooked it in the remaining gravy -yum!
I made this for dinner last night and I have to tell you this has got to be one of the best roasts I have ever prepared. I loved the fresh herbs although I did add extra garlic. The smells coming from my kitchen were devine and the roast was a nice medium rare. Delicious! Can't wait for left overs! Thanks
