Absolutely wonderful! Made as written with one adjustment, I used Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning (salt free) in place of salt sand pepper. The roast came out so tender and has so much flavor, plus a creamy gravy, it doesn't get any better than this. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe.
