We loved this recipe. I did some tweaking myself and couldn't be happier with it. I seared the roast first and then used all the packets (was not to salty for us) as a rub on the roast, added everything to crockpot. I only used 1/2 cup water and added 1/2 cup of a good red wine. Then added in all the veggies plus pearl onions, celery and rhutabaga. Let in cook as directed and it was wonderful. It might have been due to the extra veggies that it wasn't salty but had no problems with it. When we removed the meat, made a gravy out of the sauce to pour over the vegies and meat and ended up with a full meal in one pot. What a wonderful recipe, taste great, easy to mix and one pot clean up. Thanks for posting.
