"Very tasty dish!! The only issue was that my roast never seemed to be fork tender. Still good, but I am used to a fork tender roast. Might have been the cut of meat though."

"This was my first real slow cooker meal and it turned out great. I fixed it up before work, and when I got home it was done. Super easy. Although it was great as is, next time I will add potatoes and celery."

"My husband, who is not a huge fan of pot roast/roast beef, raved about the flavor. It's tender and delicious...slices of beef in rich gravy. I threw in some quartered red potatoes in the last 2 hours. Simple to prepare and a pleasure to come home to!"

"This recipe is everything you want, easy, quick and amazingly delicious. As some others did, I browned the seasoned roast in butter, then browned carrots and onion quarters in the drippings. Placed those in the crock pot and deglazed the pan with one cup red wine and the soups. Poured over the roast. Six hours on high and it was awesome."

"It was easy, but smelled and tasted like I had been working all day in the kitchen. We will do this one over and over. We had mashed potatoes with the roast because the gravy is so good."

"I made this for my 88-year-old dad yesterday and he loved it. So did my brother. I added 1 can of whole mushrooms to give it additional texture and it was AWESOME. The gravy was a little runny at the end of 8 hours so I added a bit of corn starch mixed with water to the gravy and stirred it in after I removed the roast. It provided 2 full days of meals."
