This has to be the best tasting roast I have ever made! I was a little leery at first at the quantity of onions ... but they were simply delicious, and the sauce was very tasty. Thanks for posting a great recipe--I will make this again & again! -M :)

Great flavor! Both the onions and the meat melt in your mouth! Will definately make this one again.

A very good slow cooker roast. Before I put the beef in the slow cooker, I made 4 or 5 slits in the roast and stuffed sliced garlic in them. The juices produced from the recipe are very light. Not a heavy, thick gravy. It tasted good.
