While I'm not a big fan of pot roast, it happens to be one of my husband's favorite meals, so after trying lots and lots of different recipes, I found this one in "The Silver Palate Cookbook" and I have to say, it's the best I've tried. This is the one pot roast I actually enjoy! You cook this one in the oven and, believe me, it's so much better this way versus on top of the stove. The comments in parenthesis are my own. Prep time is approximate.
