2 (12 ounce) jars
beef gravy (such as Heinz®)
dried thyme, divided
dried rosemary, divided
dried sage, divided
onion salt, divided
extra-virgin olive oil
1 (3 pound)
boneless beef chuck roast
I added the same amount of parsley as the rest of the ingredients (to make it officially simon and garfunkel style) and it was very good. I will make it again!!!
Way too much rosemary....but I love the idea of the gravy!!
We liked this but next time I would cut way back on all the spices other then the onion (I used onion powder instead of onion salt as I didn't have any). I also would not add any water next time. I think I would go with the other reviewer that only used a teaspoon of each spice.
This was really yummy. I only put in a teaspoon of each spice though and I added pepper. Made French Load to go with it!
I really enjoyed this recipe although I made a few modifications. The spices added a lot of flavor but wasn't overpowering. I mixed all of the herbs with the oil and spread it on the roast. I then seared the roast on all sides to lock in the flavor (got the idea from Marie's pot roast recipe). Then I added the roasted to the liquid ingredients in addition to a sliced onion and some garlic cloves. Once it was cooked I made some of the juices into gravy. Delish!
For those who thought there was too much herb, try using fresh herbs, chopped finely, in the same amounts. Dried herbs are pretty intense, especially a tablespoon of each. Needs onion, celery, and garlic, and of course, fresh parsley to finish the song.
i did make my own gravy for this. after i tried it i added some garlic... i think it has too much water but the taste is good.
This was OK overall and liked the use of jarred gravy, but WAY too much spice for my tastebuds. It might be OK if the spice was cut by at least 1/2. Smelled OK while cooking, but could tell it was going to be a strong flavor. If you like strong flavors, you'll love this. Me, not so much.
