"It's too easy, can't be good" is what I thought when I read this recipie, until I tried it today. My husband said "Why are you putting it in the crock pot tonight, when we're going to eat it tomorrow night?". It was SOOO good, I am replacing my usual roast recipie with this one. Absolutely lucious!

I have made this recipe many times, but I add a packet of ranch dressing mix along with the Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix. I know this sounds strange,but the combination of flavors is great and it makes a wonderful sauce to serve with noodles.

I have made this and it is awesome! So easy and so good! I have also cooked it in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-6 hours, or until it falls apart.

I used a 6lb boneless beef and it was cooked when I go up in the morning. And yes I cooked it on LOW. Tasted nice but very disappointed that it was cooked 10hrs before it was needed.

Very good, used it for company and all asked for the recipe. I have used both ranch dressing and the onion soup mix and both were great. Only way I'm going to cook a roast from now on. Great on buns too!

WOW!! This roast was excellent. We could smell the aroma all through our house!! It had just the right amount of spice which gave it a little "kick!" I will definately make this recipe again.

For a sandwich, you can't beat this recipe! I have an old crock pot and a newer one, and chose to use the older one for this recipe. I cooked for 10 1/2 hours, and my roast was tender, but not falling apart. It was also very moist! I added the pepperonici's (whole) and a bit of the juice from the jar. I am a heat lover, and I wish I'd added a few more peppers. Loved the dimension this added. I sauteed onions in butter to add to my sandwich. I bought Italian sub rolls and put smoked provolone cheese on the top side of the bun. Baked at 375 for 5 minutes, then turned the oven to broil until the bread was nice and toasted. While this was happening, I shredded some of my beef for the sandwich. Spread horseradish on the uncheesed side of the bread, and added my beef, sauteed onion, and pepperonici's. Topped with the side of the bread with the wonderful melted provolone. Served with a ramekin of the juice from the crock pot.....spectacular! With the sandwich fixings, this goes into my keeper file.....served as a roast, maybe not. But wonderful for sandwiches!!! Thanks for sharing.
