Fall 2004, October 1998, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

This recipe is reminiscent of a pot roast made with onion-soup mix, but the flavors are true and pure--and nobody misses the excess sodium. (For a slow-cooker variation, see below.)

Tender, but bland

I made this recipe for Christmas Eve & was disappointed. I expected the onions, coffee & balsamic vinegar to bring with it a lot of flavor -- not so. I guess I'm still on the hunt for a healthy, yet flavorful, roast beef recipe.

Tender beef & easy recipe

Incredibly delicious and easy. The Onion Soup Mix version used to be a standby for me, the sodium content was always a negative. This recipe has more flavor and none of the "sodium hangover"! My husband and I both loved it. I used the oven braising method, but next time will try the crockpot version for ease and convenience. Served it with skinny mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.

Impressive and easy. Lots of flavor - better than anything you could make with a packet!! This one is definitely going into the fall/winter menu rotation.
