I was so looking forward to making this highly rated roast as any crockpot dishes I have tried have always been mediocre. I so wanted this one to be great but sadly, not - another mediocre dish after following the recipe to a T. Suggest to anyone trying this, more seasoning is needed to make this dish even close to 5 stars.

Have made many roasts in the crockpot. This one turned out well, although I think I prefer cooking beef in cola vs ginger ale. We sliced the roast thin and served as an open-faced sandwich with the gravy spooned on top. Made for Football Pool Week 2 win.

My DS hates roasts, so I haven't made one in a long time. Craving one horribly, and saw this last night and just had to try it out. Delicious and easy....usually I brown my roast before putting in the crock pot, but didn't notice a difference with this. Very similar to another crock-pot roast that I make and love! I am smiling ear-to-ear. I had some comfort food today! Delicious! Thanks for sharing.
