MY REVIEW

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.

MY REVIEW

I used a can of mushroom soup and a can of French onion soup, and the sherry. I did not use the onion soup mix. It was fabulous! Just an FYI, in the comments they are saying they braised the roast before they put it in the slow cooker. I do believe they meant SEARED or BROWNED the roast before it went in the slow cooker.
