This is my first shot at posting a recipe. I learned the trick of using onion soup mix from my mother-in-law. I never cared for roast until I had hers. She usually put potatoes in it, but I recently tried cauliflower as a healthier alternative. My husband, who is a potato fanatic, loved it. (although he did suggest I do both) The cauliflower comes out with such a great flavor, you don't even need gravy, but the broth makes an excellent gravy.
