Classic Beef Pot Roast

(originally made 2/2008)

I made this for dinner friday night but between the snow and celebrating our anniversary I forgot to post a review    :)      The title of this says it all- CLASSIC.    They should have also called it simple and very yummy   :)      I've never used wine with a roast before, I'm not a good wine buyer at all   LOL    I had a bottle of 1990 that my parents had kicking around and passed on to me   :)   I added just about a cup more beef broth, because I started it too early and the pot would have run dry before Tim got home from work.     :)
