"Our oldest daughter shared this recipe with me a few years ago. It truly IS the best beef roast we've ever had! Like a few other people remarked, I'm not a big fan of beef roast. But, this one is melt-in-your-mouth delicious!"

"By far the best roast I've ever had!! My husband is usually not a big fan of roast but he is now! Before I put the roast in the crock pot I rubbed it down with a little creole, garlic salt, seasoning salt, onion powder and pepper. So simple to make. This will be a new regular meal for us! Great with sliced and boiled red potatoes with a stick of melted butter on top."

"Super yummy. I don't like mushroom soup so I used a can of cream of celery and cream of onion. Will definitely make this again. Easy to put together before I rush out the door to work."

"My kids are super picky eaters. I did NOT tell them this was made with mushrooms and onions. The gravy was awesome and they kept coming back for more - even hours later after I had put the leftovers in the fridge. My crock pot was done with the 3 lbs. of beef in 4 hours on low (as indicated by the pop up timer in the beef). By the time we ate the beef was a little dry but the gravy made up for it. Can't wait to make it again with a couple hours less cooking time. And it's REALLY quick and easy to prepare."

"Very good. I took 2 cans of mushroom soup and mixed in 1 can of french onion soup. I didn't use the broth, sherry or dry soup mix. I browned the roast first. Also only cooked for 5 hours. Our slow cooker cooks fast. Very good meal."
