I love cooking roasts in the crock pot. This was wonderful. I did add in some baby cut carrots and a sliced onion. When I measured the drippings there was exactly 1 cup. I used a brown rice thicker which was added to the liquid first and allowed to thicken. The heat was turned off and Greek yogurt was gently stirred in. It made a very nice sauce for the beef and gluten free pasta. The carrots and onion were served on the side along with Roasted Broccoli With Lemon. Made for Aussie Swap.
Yum! The beef was really tender as you'd expect in a slow cooker but we loved the sauce. Made all as directed other than I used Greek yoghurt and served with a few steamed vegies as well as the noodles and the sauce was great over everything.
Made this for dinner tonight and served the meat over egg noodles. Everyone gave the meat 5 stars (even though my cut of meat was very tough) because the flavor of the meat was WONDERFUL! However; the sauce got mixed reviews...my eldest DD and I loved it, where as my other two DDs didn't like the sauce at all. DS said the sauce was ok, and DH wouldn't try it just because it had dill in it. I never told him that the roast itself had dill. What he doesn't know won't hurt him. Thanks for sharing your recipe Sarah. Made and reviewed for the 30th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap
I made this for PAC, Fall 2008. The roast was so tender, we loved it. The sauce however, didn't thicken for me. I used low fat yogurt so that may have been the problem. Next time I make this I will throw some potatoes in because I love potatoes and dill. I was hoping to have enough leftovers for a pot pie but we ate to much of it. Thanks Sarah, this will go in my winter rotation.
This was WONDERFUL. This recipes was my husbands first attempt at cooking solo and he did very well. The sauce needs just a bit of salt, but other than that, the meat was very tender and juicy. The sauce is great over potatoes, as well.
This is the best recipe I've found for a roast in the slow cooker...it was very moist and flavorful. The sauce really didn't turn out for me in the end but I was okay without it. This is being added to my rotation of recipes!
