    We love this. I usually throw in whatever veggies I got a bit of celery, onions, rutabaga, a tomato, they help give a great flavor to the gravy. After removing the roast, potatoes and carrots puree the rest veggies with a hand blender and voila thicker gravy with good taste. - 1/6/09

    Just made this... it was excellent.

    I substituted another can of the beef broth for the water and wine... it adds an extra cup of liquid, but works just the same.

    When it was done, I removed everything from the liquid, put it in a pot and turned it into gravy with corn starch.

    My whole famly loved this. There wasn't much meat left but there were plenty of veggies and broth left. I made some No Yolk noodles the next day and had instant awesome soup. YUMMMM!! I will be cooking this again tomorrow. So glad to have found a recipe without mushroom soup since I HATE mushrooms. - 1/3/11

    I made almost the same this last week end. This is an easy but delicious recipe. I added tomato paste, red and green peppers, and zucchini. It cooked the whole night in the oven.
    That's what we call "pot au feu" in French...
