Best Pot Roast submitted by Mom Johnson
My friend Terrie introduced me to this wonderfully flavored pot roast. Serve with baby red new potatoes and vegetables.

Brown beef on all sides in butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add buillion, onion, spices, vinegar, brandy, molasses, and sugar. Simmer 3 hours or till tender. Strain off the liquid adding 5 T. flour and 1/2 cup cream or half and half to make a gravy. ( I usually double the ingredients from "bay leaves through the brown sugar and cream" to make more of the wonderful saucy gravy.)
