I came across this recipe while reading Nora Ephron's hysterical book, Heartburn. It's peppered with recipes throughout. This one sounds rather strange, as you just dump it all in a pot and shove it in the oven. I was amazed and delighted when it turned out to be delicious. Not my mainstay pot roast, but one I cook when short on prep time, or in the mood for something different. Doesn't get any easier than this! It makes great sandwiches the next day.
