This is the first recipe review I have ever given, and this recipe deserves all the accolades it can possibly get! I am not even a big meat eater, but I have made this pot roast TWICE in the past month. I hate salty food, and I didn't find this this salty at all. I only made one roast, and slid a few chopped up potatoes, carrots, onions, and garlic cloves under it (to make it all fit in my 4 quart crockpot). I also added 1/4 cup of water to the recipe (because I love the gravy)! My family likes the beef (which totally falls apart) and potatoes, while I favor the gravy and carrots. We all enjoy it over rice pilaf. It smells SO good while its simmering merrily in the crockpot ~ Try it tonight!

I didn't change a thing. My family loved it. Very flavorful and fall apart tender.

Made this. Delicious. Was way to salty. Next time, I will use just one of the package. Need to cut down on the salty taste.

I've been making this recipe for twenty years. I only use one boneless chuck roast and put potatoes and carrot chunks under it and cook at 325 in the oven in my covered Dutch oven for about two and a half hours. I also use a bit more water to make sure I have enough of the gravy

This has become a favorite! I like to put fresh mushrooms and/or green beans under the roast and wow! This recipe also works beautifully with pork butt!

This is my favorite pot roast! I've been making it for years and it is always very good. I sometimes just buy stew meat, add some potatoes and carrots and do the same thing.

Salty, but perfect over mashed potatoes. Will definitely be making this again.

It is very flavorful but also very salty. I like things a little salty and this was too salty for me.

I made some mashed potatoes and served the meat over the potatoes and there were no leftovers! I used beef stock instead of water and this was the most flavorful roast I've ever had. Definitely making it again!
