My mom has made a very similar recipe for 40 years - still my favorite to make! We do not brown the roast. Put it in the pot (a flat chuck roast works great), drizzle some Heinz 57 steak sauce on top (3-4 Tbs), sprinkle on 1 pkg of onion soup mix, and mix 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup with about 1/2 can of water (I'll have to try it with the vermouth) - pour it over top of the roast. Cover and put in a 350 oven for 1 hour, then reduce to 275 for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours. You may want to slide a foil-lined cookie sheet onto the lower rack of the oven when you start, in case the liquid boils over. Best gravy ever! Makes great hot beef sands with mashed potatoes and cover the whole thing with the gravy.
