"I've made this recipe with beef, pork, and turkey and it always comes out delicious. Sometimes I also add some quartered potatoes to the slow cooker. This is a very versatile recipe and so easy!"

"I make this recipe quite often! I never have cut the roast in half, so not sure it makes a difference? I also have used sirloin steak instead of the roast. Just as good! Also, I've substituted the brown gravy mix with herb gravy mix for just a lil extra flavor."

"It was very easy to make - literally took 5 minutes to put together. I used a lesser cut of meat and it was like shoe leather - but the gravy on the salvageable parts of the roast was very taste. I added a sliced onion on top of the roast, as I like them cooked along with it. I will definitely try it again with a sirloin tip roast."

"My family really enjoyed this and it was so easy. Truly, only 5 minutes of prep. The roast turned out "fall apart" tender. Made great open faced roast beef sandwiches."
