Very tasty. I did not add the water the recipe called for and I still needed to thicken my gravy. Other than that I made as directed. Roast was tender and the gravy was very tasty.

Used a 7 quart slow cooker and added potatoes and celery. Next time I'd like to add quartered onions, too. The gravy is pretty runny, might try to thicken it with cornstarch on the stove next time.

This makes an excellent gravy and it has a pleasing flavor!!

Very tasty dish!! The only issue was that my roast never seemed to be fork tender. Still good, but I am used to a fork tender roast. Might have been the cut of meat though.

Big disappointment. The gravy was runny and way too salty. Will look for a different recipe for fixing a roast next time.

This has become a stand by at least once a weak. My family wants to eat the gravey with a spoon!

This was my first real slow cooker meal and it turned out great. I fixed it up before work, and when I got home it was done. Super easy. Although it was great as is, next time I will add potatoes and celery.

The gravy was not very good tasting... I don't think the cream of mushroom soup was a good idea.. I will find another receip..
