This was very easy to make, however I found that after 15 hours of cooking on the low setting the meat was burning - I have a new crock pot that perhaps cooks a bit hotter than the old ones - I would recommend watching the meat closely after 10 hours and am sure the results will be tasty

I threw this together during my last oamc session. Defrosted last night and put it in the crockpot this morning. I thought these were pretty good (dh says not better than arbys though lol.). It is pretty easy, but only gets the three stars from me because it didn't wow me. We will probably have it again sometime though. I did love the onions after they cooked down as well. Thanks for sharing something so easy.

I have made this twice now and it is so good! I'm usually not a fan of roast beef but somehow this recipe makes me drool, lol! I used Copycat Lipton's Onion Soup Mix for the soup mix. After cooking, I shredded the meat with 2 forks and served on Homemade Buns. Thanks for posting! :)
