Good basic recipe. I brown a chuck roast in olive oil and follow the recipe adding vegetables that are in season. I also replace the water with low-sodium chicken or beef broth. I have added turnips, parsnips, brussel sprouts, cabbage and varied the spices with tarragon, rosemary, ginger, cinnamon, whole peppercorns, garlic (crushed cloves or celery powder), and bay leaves depending on these changes. I always include, if available, the basic three of Mediterranean cooking onions, carrots and celery and modify from there. Another variation is to add a can of tomato paste for a red roast. The possibilities are endless but this recipe provides a good basis for all of my modifications.
