I liked this well enough but, truth be told, I have to say I was a little let down. I was enthusiastic about the ingredients, specifically the addition of the Italian salad dressing mix, which I assumed would lend great flavor. It’s not something I ever use or buy but did so just for this recipe. Had I not put this together myself I would have never known it was in there. Better flavor contributions, I found, were the glug of red wine and sliced fresh mushrooms I added. I’m not sure this would have tasted any differently simply omitting both the au jus and Italian salad dressing mixes. Note: Since I wanted this for slicing I used a rump roast rather than chuck roast. I refrigerated it overnight for ease in slicing. Also, I didn’t add the 1/2 tsp. salt which I knew would be overkill considering the salt already in the other ingredients called for. Good call.
