This was ok! Not my favorite! Didn't blow me away or anything. Easy though. Followed directions to the T. Except less onion and added carrots to the crockpot.
I just put all indredients in my crockpot and boy does it smell good! :-) So far this is so easy, can't wait to taste it, I think I'll make mashed potatos to go with it to help soak up some gravy, m-m-m. I'll have to let you know how it comes out.
Delicious! I made this as directed and we absolutely loved it. The roast was falling apart tender and the gravy was super. Thanks Shannon for a new family favorite. Made for Photo Tag.
