Wonderful and easy! I used a can of beef broth instead of the water (I like a little extra joice) and sprinkled some beef bouillon and garlic powder on top of the roast.

Yummy and easy!! I considered adding some garlic, but didn't. Next time-- maybe. Basic recipe that results in great comfort food. Reminds me of when my mom would make a roast when I was growing up.

We liked this roast. I was nervous about the amount of water, so I did add a bit extra and it did make it taste a little more diluted. I'll make it again and follow the 1/2 cup water direction. We like garlic, so I added some garlic powder and some ground white pepper.

Thank you for posting this! I bought a very lean roast from Trader Joe's and instead of buillion cubes or water I just used Beef stock. I put it in the slow cooker for about 6 hours and it was absolutely incredible! So very easy and simple ingredients. Thanks!!!

This is a great pot roast, but I like using McCormicks Au Jus or Beef Stew packets instead of the boullion cubes. Au Jus makes it a little thinner, while if you used the Beef Stew it is thicker and can be used as a gravy on potatoes or rice.

lovely meal for sunday lunch. i cooked it over night and the only extra think that i added was onion gravy granules because thats all i had on hand. the meal was lovely and the beef you could have cut with a spoon. i served the meal with broccoli and sprouts and yorkshire pudding and i will definately be making this often.

This is the first Pot Roast I have ever made and it was great!! I didn't change anything in the recipe. I cooked it on low for 7 hours, the meat was tender and the veggies were soft/firm, perfect!! Even my PICKEY boyfriend like it. This is a keeper!!

I actually used a combination of this recipe and the one that comes with the Lipton Onion Soup. I only had one packet of soup, so I used that and the 3 bouillion cubes, and it was perfect. I also used two large potatoes, and three carrots, a vidalia onion, and left out the celery. Oh, and I don't know what the reviewer who complained about too little water was saying--I used 1/2 cup, as both this recipe and the Lipton recipe called for it, and it wa perfect. I also browned the roast beforehand, but I'm not sure if that made any difference in flavor. Oh, and I also added some flour and water at the end and made gravy. Thanks for the easy and tasty recipe!

It was easy, BUT... 1/2 cup of water? Too dry! With all the ingredients listed, I ended up using nearly 4 cups of water. The baby carrots were tasteless, I find using good ol' "regular" carrots - washed well- with the skins kept on are MUCH more flavorful! I even keep the skins of the potatoes on! I suggest a packet of onion soup mix, too (even with the chopped onions).
