This great recipe is adapted from The Gooseberry Patch Cookbook: We Gather Together. It is a great fall recipe to come home to at the end of a long day. It can be served over a bed of rice or potatoes and drizzled with the sauce and then for leftovers, shred the roast, stir it into the gravy and serve warm on toasted buns. You can't go wrong either way!
