DELICIOUS mainstay on our menu! It makes the BEST GRAVY!!! We have this for dinner quite frequently....good and easy to prepare! All the veggies go in and cook along with the roast. Rice is always served and the roast and veggies are placed on top. UMMMmm!

This is a delicious roast! I basically followed it exactly other than using a little more than a 3 pound roast to serve the four of us. I cooked mine on high for the first hour and then low for about 7 more hours. The roast was fall-apart tender and very flavorful. The vegetables were done just right. Thanks for sharing!

I would recommend this recipe, very very good. I also added a half packet of onion soup mix, 1 small can of stewed tomatoes and about a cup of water. Since I had a late start that morning I put the crockpot on high for 2 hours then turned it on low for 4 hrs. The chuck roast was falling apart and the vegetables were cooked just right. I will certainly make this again since it was a hit with my husband who is a meat and potatoes kinds guy.

What a fabulous recipe! The roast was absolutely fork tender, melt-in-your-mouth wonderful! Since I was cooking for 6, I pretty much doubled the entire recipe. I made it exactly as written except I used cream of mushroom with garlic soup instead of the plain cream of mushroom, as that is what I had in my pantry. I was a bit hesitant about the "gravy" so I bought a jar of beef gravy just in case. Didn't need it at all. The gravy in this recipe is delicious, and quite thick enough! Everyone loved this dish, I got rave reviews! I'd give it 6 stars if I could, it's just that good. A keeper for sure, yum!!!!!
