    OneEye's Note:

    A recipe from my childhood; Mom found it in a Better Homes and Gardens recipe book from 1977. I prefer the crockpot method, but if you don't have one, you can make this on the stove. There is a note in the cookbook that says she used this recipe to make pot roast in the Crockpot as well.
