  1. I made this tonight for dinner and it is a definite keeper. I doubt I will ever make pot roast any other way again.
    I did not have the dried mushrooms but I used extra fresh ones and it was delicious! The wine I used was Baco Noir which was great and paired nicely with both the beef and the mushrooms.
    I also made a gravy from the liquid and it was awesome. We had company for dinner and I got a lot of compliments.
    Thank you for such a great recipe.

  2. This is a fantastic recipe!! The world is going crazy right now with the quarantining so I wanted something comforting. I’m trying to quit picking at it before meal time. Beef roast have always been meh, it’s ok, but this is tender and moist!

  3. I’ve made this roast twice now and the second time my daughter came for dinner and gave me the nicest compliment that thus is one of the best pot roasts that I’ve ever made. Thank you for sharing!!!!
