After seeing this recipe during Pick A Chef I quickly added it to my must try list. I am glad I did. It was easy to put together & made a great crock pot meal. I added 3 smashed cloves of garlic, coarse black pepper, 2 onions, and used the tarragon option. Golden Mushroom Soup is one of my favorite prepared soups & it goes well here and it adds lots of flavor. The resulting drippings are very thin, but tasty. I ladled some out of the crockpot, added a cornstarch slurry, and made a gravy. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.
This was an awesome recipe! For the herb, I used just basil. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as written. And the roast was so tender that it just fell apart with a fork -- no carving knife needed. And the potatoes and carrots were scrumptious with the gravy that was produced from the soup and meat drippings. This is a definitely "keeper". Thanks, CelebrationFL. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.
