Ingredient Notes and Variations

Worcestershire sauce: Adds depth and flavors to the roast, enhancing its savory profile with a hint of tanginess. For a different profile, you can use vinegar or soy sauce.

Dijon mustard: The dish has a subtle tang and complexity, perfectly complementing the richness of meat and other ingredients. You can use yellow mustard instead for a light flavor profile.

Dry onion soup mix: It is a convenient way to add depth and flavors to the roast. It infuses the savory taste of onions and herbs. You can use store-bought or homemade soup mixes with dried onions, garlic powder, thyme, and seafood.

Red potatoes: The red potatoes have a perfect starch content that complements the roast and gives it a creamy texture. You use whole potatoes or cut them into chunks according to your preference.

Baby carrots: These carrots add sweetness and colors to the dish. You can use regular carrots instead.
