    This is a very easy and quick roast to prepare for crockpot. Great Taste and very tender. I cooked 1 hr. on high and then 8 hrs. on low. Can also use boneless cross rib roast. I used baby bella mushrooms. I used frozen pearl onions after defrosting them a bit.

    Love, Love, Love this pot roast. Added 3 cloves of fresh pressed garlic and did not use the mushroom gravy. I used a jar of Hienz beef gravy instead. After cooking for the 6 1/2 hrs as recommended, I wisked 1/4 cup of Wondera & about 1/2 cup of water, turned cooker on high and stirred into the mixture. I let it cook about 15 more min. stirring once. The gravy turned out perfectly for my rice. This takes so much less preparation than my oven pot roast and is just as good. I will use it exclusively from now on. Thank you for this one!

    Came out great - except the meat doesn't need to cook that long - about 6 hrs on low or 3-3 1/2 on high. This recipe is great for a Sunday when you feel like kicking back and not fussing in the kitchen.
