  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!
