I'll be honest, I didn't make this. I did, however, print it out for a friend, who served it to me for lunch last Saturday. I totally enjoyed it, had seconds, and even thought about thirds. I would have added a ton of garlic, but that's just me. Thanks Dorothy, this one is a winner!
Thank you Dorothy for this crockpot recipe.....I only added a few things just to kick it up a little;>).....2 tsp ready to serve chopped garlic and 1 medium bay leaf also used Kosher salt....must say the best I have had!!!!
This was a very good dish....the rosemary and thyme made all the difference. This is a keeper.
This was a hit for Easter dinner. The meat was very tender and flavorful as were the potatoes and carrots. I was a little hesitent about pasting the dijon mustard plus spices directly on the chuck roast but it worked out nicely with the flavor of the thyme and rosemary permeating the meat and vegetables. I actually put the entire recipe together in the crockpot the night before, placed it in the refrigerator and on Easter morning I just plugged it in (I did make sure that the potatoes were under the beef broth to prevent any discoloration). Worked out very well and I didn't have all the work to do they day of Easter.
A real winner! Made two of these for a church function and they disappered in a heartbeat. Must admit had my doubts about the Dijon mustard, but the spices, veggies, etc. really came together for a nice, mellow flavor. This is sure to become a "crockpot classic"!
Very good, a must try.
I made this for my birthday and it is delicious! I added some bell peppers with the onions to add just a bit more flavor. It's definitely worth trying!
My husband really enjoyed it. His words were "this roast is amazing". He was hesitant at first with everything being rubbed on the roast though. I did put the mustard mixture on the roast the night before and let it sit and I cut up all the veggies (potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, & celery) the night before also and put them in containers. It made it a lot easier to prepare the next morning.
DH and I had this roast last night for dinner. It gets extra points from me because it was so easy for me to prepare. Wait 8 hours and viola, it is done. I used fresh rosemary and thyme from my garden and took the advice of other reviewers adding a bay leaf and a fat clove of chopped garlic in Step 3 and 3 more cloves of garlic in the crock pot. I had more than a generous amount of mustard mix to pat onto the roast and it smelled incredibly fragrant. However, after 8 hours, not alot of the herb/mustard taste came through on the meat itself, which was disappointing. The broth had a nice flavor. Thanks for this quick and easy meal.
We loved this crock pot meal. The meat was perfect and had such a great flavor. The broth was richly flavored and was wonderful poured over the roast and potatoes when served. Thanks for a nice recipe.
