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.
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!
This recipe did not make a thick enough gravy for my liking, so I added 2 gravy packets mixed with just a little water and added this at the end. After adding the gravy it turned out great!
Made this for dinner tonight for the gals. Only a few minor substitutions due to some allergies: I subbed turnips for onions (and used onion powder for flavor), and couldn't use cream of mushroom soup (no mushrooms or flour allowed), so I used some cream and gluten-free cornstarch. It turned out wonderful, although not as "thick" a gravy I would have liked (probably due to the subs). To the person who claimed it was bland, you must season at every step, as you would in normal cooking. Season the beef before you sautee it, season the veggies (only a little), and then season the "gravy". It turned out great, and I'm looking forward to eating the leftovers (if there are any).
No flavor! Waited all day to try this thinking would be good recipe but way to plain and bland for us. May be great for people that things very plain.
Why do you brown the roast before putting it in the crock pot?
I saw this recipe, looked delicious so I was a little pressed for time and cooked it in a pressure cooker, and Wow! the gravy was very good and the meat was very tender! I followed the recipe as planned! Kids loved it as well!
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!!!!!
Very, very, very good!
Very good, only thing I changed was used a 3 pound chuck roast. Thanks for the recipe.
