Reviews for Marinated Chuck Roast
"Family loved the sweeter flavor! I added minced garlic, chopped onions, black pepper and Emeril's essence to the marinade. Will add ginger & sea salt next time. I layered the crock pot with tomatoes, red potatoes, bell pepper, celery, carrots and mushrooms. Add roast and marinade, cooked on high for 6 hrs. Added cornstarch and gravy browner last 30-45 minutes of cooking. Yummy!"
"We absolutely LOVED this! Didn't have time to let it marinate as long as recommended (only a couple of hours) put it in a stone, placed on the grill and cooked for a couple hours. Fabulous!"
"Excellent! I marinated for 24 hours and it was delicious!"
"I normally use Lawrys Beef Marinade in the crockpot and they have stopped carrying the seasoning so I tried this. Its so amazing!"
"this was super easy and absolutely deeeelish!!! plating it with style makes it look as awesome as it tastes - 5 star restaurant like :)"
"So-So. Nothing special."
"This was SO MUCH BETTER than crock pot beef roast with onion soup mix... which was the only way I knew how to prepare a roast before the recipe. It really was delicious."
"I made this last night however I only marinaded for 1 hour & then cooked the meat on the grill (low & slow).Turned out great. Really good flavor with the marinade."
"I added beef broth to the juices after baking, heated and thickened with cornstarch to make a nice gravy. (Baked in stoneware)"
"Thanks....I will doing this with my next roast....Kathy"
