Being married to a West Texan this is a waste of good beef. If you want roast and gravy simply season flour with salt and pepper or Cajun seasoning. Coat the roast and sear in Olive oil in a heavy skillet. Put it in the Crock pot and use the flour and drippings to make gravy. Poor the gravy over the roast nd cook. People overseason beef and you lose the flavor.

I didn't care for this at all. I thought it had a weird taste to it. I don't know if it was the onion soup mix because I have made roast before using just the canned soup and it turned out fine.

This is a great recipe as it is so easy and very tasty! I do add a bay leaf and some flour to thicken the gravy up a bit but the family loves this fork-soft beef roast!

This is so easy and so good. I like to add a can of mushrooms that I have drained and instead of using the sherry I use the beef broth.

I love how easy & tasty this recipe is. I cut up carrots & potatoes & placed them under the roast. Cooked it on high for 4 hours. Turned out perfect!

This is my family's favorite pot roast recipe. I sometimes use a pork roast with the other ingredients. We love the creamy gravy...instead of sherry, I use Marsala wine. It's a great gravy for meatballs and ground meat, too.

Delicious! Roast was very tender and the gravy was wonderful over mashed potatoes. I love mushrooms so I added a can to mine.

Our oldest daughter shared this recipe with me a few years ago. It truly IS the best beef roast we've ever had! Like a few other people remarked, I'm not a big fan of beef roast. But, this one is melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

By far the best roast I've ever had!! My husband is usually not a big fan of roast but he is now! Before I put the roast in the crock pot I rubbed it down with a little creole, garlic salt, seasoning salt, onion powder and pepper. So simple to make. This will be a new regular meal for us! Great with sliced and boiled red potatoes with a stick of melted butter on top.
