The dry soup mix and mushroom soup produce a great tasting gravy, use only a small of salt as the dry onion soup mix already has plenty of salt or you may omit it completely and just season the roast with black pepper and garlic powder --- cooking time will depend on the size of your roast.

This is a fantastic recipe. A tried and true. I put everything in my crockpot and cooked in on low for 8 hours.
Great recipe! I used cream of mushroom and water, used parsnips instead of potatoes (trying to lower carbs) and it was super. This has very good flavor. I will make this again! Thanks!
This roast certainly was amazing! It was easy to make and had exceptional flavor. At first i was worried about what flavor the beer would give it, but in the end, there is no specific beer flavor. everything blends and it's great! it did seem to thicken a bit too early, so i just added some canned beef broth. I'll make this over and over!
