Boneless short ribs will give you a nicer result than chuck roast.

Oh and fresh red onions and fresh bell peppers. Nothing canned or dried in my recipe... makes a huge difference! Vegetable stock instead of the powdered soup mix. Just a little seasoned salt and a mixed ground pepper blend to taste.

Substitute a filet roast, then add celery, garlic, golden potatoes, parsley, portobellos, tomatoes, red wine, bay leaves and rosemary to really kick it up a notch! The existing ingredients aren't quite sufficient for me... Try my version. It'll blow your mind... lol and your taste buds.

Pot roast for grown ups. No tomatoes or beef gravy. 1 cup each red wine, chicken broth & water. Also, 2 bay leaves, 2 whole garlic cloves & 1 T fresh chopped rosemary. Not too salty from soup mix, just right. No rush to cook after walking in the door. Perfect with soft music, glass of wine & the one you love.
