"This is so easy and so good. I like to add a can of mushrooms that I have drained and instead of using the sherry I use the beef broth."

"This is my family's favorite pot roast recipe. I sometimes use a pork roast with the other ingredients. We love the creamy gravy...instead of sherry, I use Marsala wine. It's a great gravy for meatballs and ground meat, too."

"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."
