GREETINGS FROM CARMELA'S CUCINA,
The snow is gonna fly big time today. Run out to the grocery store before the conditions get too bad and buy yourself a chuck roast and make this recipe for a real comfort food meal. I tested it out on my family a few nights ago, and not a single drop of gravy, morsel of vegetable or meat was left. I did not even have to wash the plates, it was so good they licked them clean!
This recipe was given to me by my friend Pam, who proudly proclaims herself, "a non-cook". If she can make it so can you.
The roast would be great served on polenta, mashed potatoes or cous cous but I just roasted potatoes, carrots and onions the last two hours of cooking and they were great. This meal is so easy and the smells are unbelievable. Try it, you'll like it.
