Brenda's notes for this recipe:
This is really easy, just has to cook slowly in a heavy covered pot-makes it's own gravy.

Rub meat with seasonings. Place in heavy covered pot and cook on 325 degrees for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. If water gets too low, add a lttle more. Will be moist and tender.

This is how I used to make roast beef all the time..........
for a change, instead of qt of water, try pouring a can of Campbell's Soup Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic over the top of the roast and let the roast cook slow til done (add a little water to the bottom of the pan to keep it from sticking) -- oh my, makes the most tender fall-apart-roast-beef and scrumptious gravy....... towards the end of cooking time, add potatoes and carrots & enough water & thickning to add to the dripping "gravy" - OMG, to die for.
