Will you share your roast recipe?

This is the Savory Chuck Roast recipe you're asking about.  I'm asked for it over and over and am happy to share it.  It is not an original, but one I've used since my sister Debbie shared it with me from her Southern Living magazine [2000]. 

Once you've made it, you will have a hard time trying another. It has been shared with and saved by so many I've lost count. 


1 (3 lb) boneless chuck roast trimmed
2 Tbl white vinegar
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbl olive oil
1 envelope Lipton Dry Onion-Mushroom soup mix
3/4 cup sherry
1/4 cup brewed coffee
1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)

Rub roast with vinegar. Cut 8-10 slits in roast and sprinkle with garlic salt in slits. Dredge roast in flour; brown on all sides in hot oil over medium heat. Combine soup mix, sherry and coffee; pour over roast. Add mushrooms. Bake, covered, at 350° F. for 3 hours. Serve with steamed veggies.

CROCKPOT METHOD: After browning meat place remaining ingredients in crockpot and cook on high for 2 hours, reduce temperature to low; cook for an additional 7 hours.

VARIATION 3lb boneless chuck roast, trimmed

In a bowl, stir together soup mix, wine, and coffee and pour over the roast. Add sliced mushrooms.

Bake covered at 350 degrees for 2 hours. Add other veggies and cook an additional hour.
