What a great recipe! Instead of making this roast in a slow cooker, I braised it in a covered Dutch oven at 325 degrees F. First I browned the roast in about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, mixed all the sauce ingredients (tomatoes, mushroom soup and onion soup) and poured over the browned roast. Baked in a covered Dutch oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. The gravy was rich and thick so I took the roast (which was fall-apart tender) out of the pot and added about 1/2 cup water. I did not have to thicken it with cornstarch, although if you use your slow cooker to make this, I'm sure you'll need to thicken the gravy. I was not sure about using the tomatoes in this recipe ..... I'm glad I did!! The roast was super tender and juicy and the gravy was VERY flavorful. I served it with roasted root vegetables...... all in all, one of the best roasts I've made in a long time! Next time I'll try the slow cooker method.

Very easy to make and very tasty. Whole family loved it. Served over baked potatoes.I did not have beefy onion soup mix so I used regular onion soup mix and added 1 beef bouillon.

Great easy recipe that lets the beef do the talking! The beefy flavor comes out nicely in the hearty dish. I have substituted a pack of zesty italian salad dressing for the flavor also. Gives it just a little more zing. Great over any pasta or smashed potatoes.

I made this last night and it was fantastic! I tend to avoid recipes that call for meat and tomatoes unless it is a soup recipe. So glad I didn't pass this one up! Thanks for sharing this recipe. It will certainly be a family favorite in our house!
