This recipe was a hit with the kids and the hubby. I made one simple change though-- I cooked this in the crock pot. (Gotta love that crock pot!!) The beef was very tender and the au jus was flavorful.

Great recipe! I used a 4 lb rump roast and made it in a crockpot. Easy and good!

This is a very good recipe! I like the fact that the au juice is not as salty as a lot I've had.The beef was tender and the au juice is very flavorful.I served this with potato salad and jello for a nice easy meal after the busy Thanksgiving week-end.

I've made this recipe many times - Always in my crockpot so when I get home at the end of the day - the house smells wonderful and my dinner is ready. This is the only way to make roast beef sandwiches. The beef is always tender and juice is very savory. Note: I always strain the juices into individual bowls before serving. Outstanding!!

This came out very nice. I didn't slice the beef as my husband hadn't work late at the last minute. So, I let it continue to cook and then shredded it with a fork. Yummy all the same. Thanks!

Yum! I used a eye round roast and added a little garlic - as well as used the crockpot. About an hour before serving..I sliced the roast - placed back in juices to make sure the inside pieces had chance to pick up extra flavorings...yummy and so very easy! This will replace the one I'd been making! Thanks!

I made this last night with one small change...I didn't have a roast, so I used cube steak. After cooking for 1 1/2 hrs, the meat was so tender and the au jus was simply delicious. I can't wait to try this again using a roast. Served with scalloped potatoes, this was an easy meat to prepare. Thanks for a great recipe!

I LOVE this recipe. I am trying new meals at home and this will be a keeper. I added a few additional ingredients to the broth (fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, and celery). My husband and cousin loved it. It was so simple. I cooked it a little longer so the meat would tear apart.

This was good. I mixed everything together used a dark beer marinated it overnight cooked for about 2 hours and like others said it was hard to cut plus was dry next time I won't cook it as long. But the flavors of the sauce was great. I put some swiss cheese and onions on top, everyone ate them up fast. Thanks for sharing!
