I used a 2.5lb roast,cooked for 2.5 hours. I added 1 cup of beer in place of one of the 3 cups water.Plus 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder.It was great, one of the most tender beef roast I have had in a long time.

This was very good. I used a 3 lb roast and cooked for 3.5 hours. Very moist and tender. Thank you.

My family loved this! The meat came out fork tender and the potatoes and carrots tasted great. I did have to add more water twice. Thanks for a great recipe!

This smelled so good as it was cooking but it was really bland. It didn't have much of a taste. It was like there was too much water. Next time I would cut the way back by half.

What a mess. I halved my piece of meat and didn't have but one tiny onion. I could not remember whether I'd added celery seed to the bunch. I had a taste WAY long before it was ready, and it was tough as shoe leather (and this was a good piece of meat). I forgot it was still cooking and an hour or so later, took it out (finally), and it was incredibly moist. I plan on doing this again, but maybe paying more attention and getting it right. I will add a little more salt next time, and probably more onions than the recipe calls for, because I like onions. This is absolutely a keeper, and one I'd like to try to get right next time.

I made this in my crockpot, as others have suggested. This makes an absolutely TO DIE FOR gravy! I took 2 tbsp butter melted over medium heat and added approximately 2 tbsp flour and made a roux. I then added about 1 and a half cups of the hot broth from the crockpot and made a gravy. SOOO GOOD! I didn't have to add any salt or seasonings. It was perfect! Thanks MizzNezz for a great tasting recipe!

I have made this roast at least 5 times now. It's the only way i will cook a roast now! i love the comination of flavours and how the outer edge of meat gets a sort of salty, crunchy crust and the inside is fork tender. i was a little worried about the 3 cups of water; however, it's incredible and makes some pretty incredible gravy. If i have time i do cook the vegies seperate to get the full flavour from the vegies. The only addition i've made is roasting parsnips in the pot-YUMMY! Thanks! My dad also thanks you, i made this at his house and he now has the recipe posted to use again and again!

I actually did this in my crockpot/slow cooker because last minute we ended up having to be out for the day. The flavors were wonderful! I used a small beef roast and instead of sprinkling on the spices I rubbed them into the meat. I didn’t have any celery salt so threw in a few celery sticks chopped in thirds. I couldn’t resist adding some garlic and a splash of red wine. Marvelous! I didn’t use the potatoes and I used whole carrots, however next time I’ll wait until we get home to cook the carrots or use another veg as cooking them for the full time as the roast left them tasteless. I will make this again. Thank you MizzNezz.
