Delicious. I did not find the dish too salty as others did. I did replace beef broth for water and still added the bouillon. Otherwise I cooked exactly as described in recipe. The au jus was very flavorful. The meat did take a full 8 hours to become tender. I would make this again.

Delicious! I used no salt beef broth instead of water and bouillon cubes and did not use garlic salt, but powder to cut back salt amount. Would make again.

I am blind and cannot see where to click the star rating. But I would give this five for sure. It was so easy and so very good and tender. I used a 3 1/2 pound chuck tender roast. The only thing I did different was to use garlic powder instead of garlic salt. And also 1/2 teaspoon of the season Salt and added a half teaspoon of ground black pepper. Watching my sodium intake. It was delicious. Cooked for 7 1/2 hours on low. And it was fall apart tender. Husband wants to have leftoversloaded up on bake potatoes.

I've been making this for my husband for a while. He loves it. I do add more garlic and use beef broth instead of water. It's one of his very favorites! It also helps if you use a good cut of meat with minimal fat.

Very good... I eliminated the salts and used garlic power and onion powder instead. I also added some sliced onions half way thru the cooking time.

When I first started cooking I thought "oh no, it's so watery, doesn't look good". A few hours later the house was filled with an amazing aroma and the shredded meat was soooo good! I love how this takes literally 5 minutes to make and is absolutely delicious!

I made Chicago-Style Beef Sandwiches last weekend and then this one to compare the two. The flavors were very similar but this one took less prep time. I will use both recipes but this one is definitely better if you're in a hurry because the meat does not get browned first and no veggies to chop. Very tasty!
