"I prepared this recipe in the morning before work and was skeptical that there was not enough liquid, and I would come home to an overcooked delight. I would have added some beef broth, milk, or water but I wanted to follow the recipe, so I left it with hesitations. Sure enough when my wife got home 6hrs later it was burnt to a crisp. I dont have a high-powered crock pot by any means. Everything touching the sides of the crock pot needed soaked and scrubbed off with a brillo pad.

Gave 2 star bc it just needs some extra liquid, probably 1/2 C"

"The meat was very tender and the "gravy" was good. We paired it with a packet of beef flavored rice...yummy! we will def. make again...thinking about adding diced/chunky potatoes to slow cooker next time. I doubled the flour mix and made 2 packages of my meat (prolly doubled the amt. of beef) but left the rest the same. We will be freezing the leftovers for a quick meal to serve w/ minute rice for a busy night!"

"I was pleasantly surprised to find the finished gravy in no need of thickening or added spices. I doubled the pepper (1/4 tsp) in the flour mixture. I also doubled the gravy mixture (the soup, oregano, and thyme), and it went so well over egg noodles. I cooked this for over 9 hours and the meat was fall-apart tender. This has become my favorite round steak recipe! -Lori in WI."
