After trying a variety of roast recipes, I decided that this combination of different recipes worked best for me. You can also add 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms to the onion and carrots if you like a mushroom gravy or some peas too. This just in: 9/8/8 - this recipe just won 2nd place in a Beef Roundup contest sponsored by Country Woman magazine and will be featured in the Feb/March 09 issue.
