Country Chuck Roast with Onion Gravy

“This was originally my great grandmother's recipe and was passed on to my grandmother. My Memaw made this dish for many family get-togethers and always accompanied it with mounds of mashed potatoes, cole slaw and green beans, all fresh from her garden. The brown sugar is the magic that makes this roast utterly divine.”
