“This is an old family recipe and it is the only pot roast recipe that I ever make. It is deceptively simple but the flavours just seem to go together incredibly well. The taste is quite different from the usual. Don't be tempted to put in more water than is called for. The moisture comes out of the onions and the meat and you end up with a delicious broth.”
