This was similar in taste to Beef Stroganoff, but the wine definitely added depth to the flavor (and fewer calories without the sour cream!). I liked that I didn't have to brown the meat beforehand...and it turned out tender and juicy.

Pretty good, but could use some enhancements for more flavor

As many others have said, the sauce was a bit on the runny side and could have used a few spices. Since I made this just for 2, I was able add to it for leftovers—twice. First leftovers, I simply added a little more broth, but I also thickened and added garlic salt. The final meal was taco meat, chili powder and cumin gave the tender meat good flavor.

Not very tasty

The meat was very tender, but not very tasty. Even adding salt and pepper didn't do much to improve it.

The roast was fork tender! I did cook it for 6-1/2 Hours instead of 6 and added 3 cloves of garlic. With 2 hours left, I added 1-1/2 lbs of yukon potatoes cut into 2" pieces, 1 C of carrot sticks, 1 medium onion, diced, and 1/2 lb of mushrooms. I omitted the bay leaf but did add some thyme for the last hour.

Made this for dinner today and the sauce was superb. I used a merlot. My hubby said it is definitely a keeper.

Easy to make but it was missing something in the flavor. I heated up some of the sauce with cornstarch/water to thicken it to more of a gravy since the sauce was thinner then I expected.
