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.

Well, first let me say, there was no way this was going to fit into my 3 1/2 qt crockpot. I made it fit using less onions. Next time I will use a 2 pound roast and the 6 onions. And there will definitely be a next time! :) I also broke into my stashed 6-pack of gluten-free beer to make this recipe gluten-free. My stash is precious to me because I can't get Bi-Aglut here in the states. (I hand-carried it back from Denmark!) This recipe was worth it!

I had to stomp my roast into the crock due to all the onions...but I did it. LOL Next time I'll not break the rings apart when I put them into the crock. Anyway, this had a great flavor and well worth all 6 onions. Thanks Mark.

Very simple and tasty, but the onions are definitely the star of this show! I could have eaten all six of them myself! I got everything all ready the night before (browned the meat, chopped the onions, made the sauce, dumped all into crockpot & refrigerated). The next morning before work, it was a no-brainer to switch the pot on and go! Thanks, Mark!

The flavor of this roast was very good but slightly dry. I was disappointed in the onions. After 10 hours they were still quite hard. I took them and the juices and put them into a regular pot and simmered them for about 15 minutes, thickened the sauce and then it was much better. I also added lots of minced garlic.

Excellent. I used a 2 1/2 lb Bottom round roast that I had in the freezer from a sale. I had purchased 3 and I knew this one was just as tough as the other 2, so I wasn't expecting great results. Man was I surprised. This was great! I wouldn't change a thing. I love anything with caramelized onions and this was superb. Thanks for posting, this will be a much repeated recipe in my crockpot!

Loved this recipe. Didn't have any beer on hand so just added more beef broth. The beef was extremely tender, had a hard time getting it out of the crock pot, kept falling apart and the onions were amazing! Perfect recipe, will be making it again!
