This is always a recipe that is nice to have when you need to get something ready for dinner quickly. It makes its own gravy. I also have cooked this in my crockpot on Low for 8 hours.

When I saw your easy recipe, I figured I would give this a try. I used my own mixture of no-salt onion soup mix, and it turned out delicious. dh loved it. I added a pkg. of brown gravy mix and it made the gravy so tasty. I'm always looking for easy recipes with the least work. Thanks

I did sear the roast b-4 putting it in the pot. And I added a bit of water and a bit of coke about 1/2-way thru the cooking process. The gravy was great. My family loved it. So easy, and so good!
