"You need to brown the chuck roast first,searing it on all sides before putting it in the crock pot,mine came out very tender and juicy,I put the rub on before browning then put some coffee in the pan to get all the yummy bits., then add everything to the crock pot."
"This is really good and it came out moist and tender, I did not change anything except to add 1 1/4 t. dried minced onion instead of using cloves of fresh garlic (which I did not have). I already have several very good roast recipes, but this one will go into my rotation."
"This recipe sounds so great , but when i made it the meat came out dry and the gravy was not what i was expecting."
"This is now the only pot roast I make. It is delish! I love the flavors - the gravy comes out perfect every time. It couldn't be easier to make, too. In fact, it's cooking in my crockpot for tonight's dinner! I highly recommend trying this!"
"I was really disappointed in this roast. My husband and I felt it was mediocre. I cooked it on low for 8 hrs. and it was tender but a little dry. The gravy is what I was looking forward to and it was lacking in something, not sure exactly what. I will not be trying this one again."
