"Dick served something like this at his American Bandstand restaurant This is a standard recipe for Yankee pot roast some recipes use red wine but because of cost and dietary restrictions I don't feel he did. so I added a tablespoon of red wine vinegar I also added horseradish because I enjoy it ,it might have been on the side if he liked it too. He served this over garlic mashed red potatoes his herbs were probably dried"
