    I'mPat's Note:

    From our local paper. In the original recipe 3 brown onions (roughly chopped) were used but due to allergy issues they have been omitted and also 2 bunches of baby carrots (trimmed) and 3 parsnips and I have added potatoes.

      We loved this. It made a lovely tender, moist but sliceable pot roast. Didn't have parsnips so put in a few more carrots and omitted the brandy. We have hot beef sandwich's, another dinner and a lunch ahead of us from this one roast. YAY :D

      Very good recipe. I liked this allot. Parsnips aren't something I've ever used before, but due to this recipe they'll be getting more attention in my kitchen. They were a little hard to find being early spring (took 3 stores) but was very worth the extra effort. The meat was tender, but not falling apart, and very flavorful. Made gravy out of the drippings and stock. was a great compliment to the meal. made for 1-2-3 tag.

      It can't get much easier than this recipe Pat. I did have to omit the parsnips as they are not in season here and we are too rural for them to ship in I guess. The only other little change was I subbed apple juice for the brandy. The meat had a different texture than I'm used to (I don't know if it is the way the vinegar reacts to it) but it was still yummy in the end. I love being able to cook the veggies with the meat. Thanks for sharing this in Potluck Tag. :)
