I clipped this recipe from an old issue of my local newspaper, “The Courier”, back I the 80’s. It was submitted by a woman named Marilyn Lockwood, from Beverly, MA. I just tried it for the first time this week, and it’s good enough to share; the meat was very tender, and the sauce was great over rice. Next time, I’ll brown the chops before proceeding with the recipe, just for aesthetics. Enjoy!

I did use this as a base for cooking a sirloin tip in the crockpot for shredded beef sandwiches. for a three pound roast, i doubled the recipe and added a cup of beef broth. DELICIOUS!! and so so simple. Thanks for this recipe. Molly
