I made this for dinner tonight and it is amazing. Even my super picky 5 year old boy loved it. I had less roast and more veges and changed it up just a bit. I cut up 1 medium onion + about 1/2 of another and used most of a big bag of baby carrots. I added 5 or so whole cloves of garlic too. I did not have celery. I followed the recipe, adding the garlic in with the other veges. When it was time to season I added some dryed thyme (instead of rosemary, just didnt have it on hand) (eyeball it), sea salt, pepper, and 1/2 package of onion soup mix. I also added just a pinch of celery seed. Just a tiny pinch did the trick. (Celery seed is a strong spice so be careful). I placed the meat back in the dutch oven and put it in the oven for 30 minutes. Once some gravy had formed (and it will) I cut up 3 potatoes in large chunks with some skin still on. I cooked it until done, checking on it every 30 minutes and carefully stiring some to make sure the potatoes have a change to get down in the gravy. I added some pepper and thyme close to the end. The flavor was amazing but not overwhelming. I am sure the recipe is great as is but I like to change things up and use what i have. This will be replacing my crock pot recipe for roast. It is just as easy as the crock pot and could probably be adapted for the crock.
