Braised Beef and Onions

An old-fashioned pot roast recipe. Like any pot roast, this one tastes even better made ahead and reheated. Drizzle the pan juices over potatoes. I make a 1/2 recipe for the 2 of us and the leftovers make a fab hot beef sandwich! If meat is not well marbeled, I suggest adding 3/4 cup of water or beef broth to the pan at the beginning.
