"Wonderful flavors make the meat the star of the dish by combining simple ingredients for a mouth-watering meal. Our southern family has passed this recipe down for many years and enjoyed many memories dining on this delicious home-cooked classic. Save broth from roast to make a delicious gravy using flour or cornstarch, whichever is preferred." — cmm511

I've been making my roast like this for quite some time. I like to coat the roast with flour along with the salt and pepper before searing. I then remove the roast and cook the onion and carrots for a minute or two to get them slightly browned. I didn't use the garlic. Tossed in some fresh thyme along with the rosemary - the fresh herbs make all the difference. I like to thicken the pan juices into a gravy to serve over the potatoes.
