This recipe is perfect for my husband, who is a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy. The peppery, fork-tender roast combined with the rich gravy creates a tasty centerpiece for any meal. —Rita Clark, Monument, Colorado

"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."

"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!"
