"This rich-flavored pot roast makes an ideal supper. Beef brisket has the best flavor, but arm or cross rib pot roast or even chuck roast will work equally well also."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



WOW! So much flavor! At your suggestion in your description, I used a chuck roast. I followed all of your instructions up to putting it in the oven. I did mine in the slow cooker on low for 6 hours and it turned out great! Will be making this again!
