I made this today. Amazing flavor. I did add fresh mushrooms because I had them in the frig but follow the recipe just as it is, perfect.... It was the best roast we have ever eaten. I took the leftover meat and put it in the gravy and veggies. Can't wait to taste it tomorrow!

We made this about a month ago. Paired it with spaghetti noodles, sald and Italian spinach. YUMMY!! I am making this again this weekend. Don't change a thing, It's fabulous just as is.
