Duplicating Lost Pot Roast Recipe?

Many years ago I had one of those recipe file card collections. I want to say it was from McCormick, or McCalls (but don't quote me on it). There was one recipe that was so good, but I have been unable to find it or duplicate it. I remember some of the ingredients; chuck roast, potatoes, peeled and cut into fourths, carrots, peeled and cut lengthwise and crosswise into fourths, V8 juice, and I think tomato sauce. When it was done the sauce on the carrots made them the best tasting carrots I have ever had. Please help me find the recipe.
