Reviews for Sirloin Roast with Gravy
"Flavor was fine, but the roast was somewhat tough and chewy. Followed the recipe as shown. Won't make again."
"Love this recipe, my new favorite .... I followed the recipe and only made a few changes. I seared my roast on all sides in oil first than placed in slow cooker and I did not cut the roast in half, then I rubbed it liberally with beef seasoning, a pepper and garlic blend. Topped with sauce mixture and covered and cooked on low for 2 1/2 to 3 hrs til temp reached 160' to 170' degrees. Then I added 1/2 teaspoon of beef bouillon to 1 cup boiling water to my gravy mixture and cut half my roast into slices and placed in the gravy till it was bubbling, served over sour dough with a baked potato and steamed carrotts. Lovely meal for my family with a splendid flavored roast and gravy scrumptious."
"My family loved it! Excellent gravy too! I cut back on the pepper to 1 tb."
"I followed this recipe to a T & I'm sorry to say that I was highly unimpressed. The roast was way over cooked after cooking for 5 hours on low. The gravy was so potent that even using just a little was too much. My children both took one bite, spit it out and wouldn't touch any more. Sadly for me it was a waste of a perfectly good roast. Guess we're having cereal for dinner tonight :("
"I tried this recipe with an 8 pound roast. I doubled the ingredients except for the balsamic vinegar and added a package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. I was concerned that there would not be enough broth to make gravy but there was plenty. Since my family loves mushrooms, I saut?ed a lot of mushrooms in a little butter and then added some broth to continue cooking and after I thickened the gravy, I added the mushrooms. I think I could have added them half way through the cooking. Since I had so much meat, there was no room in the beginning. I also cooked the roast on high for 2 hours before turning it to low. Since this produces a lot of fat, in the future I would remove the broth to a measuring pitcher and skim off some of the fat. My family loved it! all 20. The leftovers we combined with the left over gravy and made baked potatoes and spooned the meat over the potato. Again, a hit with the family!"
"Whoa. I couldn't believe the quasi negative comments. I hate pot roasts and crock pot recipes in general but was desperate. Fantastic gravy over noodles. Very unusual combo-- I was worried about quantity of balsamic but once I made the gravy, I loved it as did my very critical sauce inspired husband. If you are disappointed in your own cooking choices please don't negatively affect the ratings. I cook a lot and depend on 4 stars or better doing what the cook suggests., So rate on the original submission not your adjustment please. I will do this when I do roasts, which isn't my usual cooking choice but I have half a lean cow to deal with! Thank you!!!!"
"Excellent, but watch the cooking time, it is very easy to overcook. Don't worry though, even overcooked it still a pretty darn good roast."
"I am so disappointed, but not in the recipe, in myself and these darn new crockpots! I had my mom's crock that was probably 20 years old, but was given a new one. I keep hearing that they cook hotter than the old, and this is so true! I cut my time in half per the reviews, then cut it again by another hour.....on low, and it was still overlooked. I didn't bother with the gravy. The flavor of the meat was great, love the pepper. But I threw out what was left. I will try this again, keeping a closer eye on the temp of the meat. Maybe cook on low for an hour, then switch it to warm (mom's crock only has high and low, maybe that's the key....?)"
"Tender and moist ...very good !"
