Excellent, well written and easy to follow recipe. Browned the roast in a frying pan on the stove and then took out meat and added in everything else to pan to soak up all the browned goodness at the bottom of the pan. Had to sub steak sauce for the tomatoe paste(I was out) and had no onions. Put the roast in a pyrex dish and poured the broth over it and added the celery and mushrooms and covered tightly with foil, I had a 4 lb. roast that I cook for about 3.5 hours it was a little over done but my husband likes it that way. I made gray with all the left over broth and it was delicious. Served it with mashed potatoes, biscuits and green salad. Thank you for the great recipe.
