This was amazing! The smell in the house all day was mouth-watering. I followed the recipe exactly. When the meat was done I toasted hoagie rolls, melted mozzerella cheese and added sauteed onions & mushrooms & mild horseradish sauce. We had alot of leftovers and will be making other dishes as well. This was the best french dip we have ever had...Thankyou!

Truly delicious! Made as directed for day 1, day 2 thickened the juices and made more of a beef and gravy mixture, and tonight I am making a pot pie out of the remaining beef and "gravy". Very good and highly recommended. Made for ZWT5.

This was tasty, but the 2nd time I made it, I subbed one can of beef broth for a can of french onion soup, and the soy sauce for a can of beer...yum. Served on rolls with spicy jack cheese

Every time I make this type of roast it comes out very dry, it was tender but dry.

Threw this in the crock yesterday AM on my way to work (BONUS points for being quick & easy to set up in the morning!) and came home to a yummy-smelling house. Served on Italian rolls.....daughter loved it plain, son added cheese, husband added pepperoncini and everyone was happy. Thanks for sharing!

My house smelled amazing all day while this was cooking. I shredded my meat cuz it was quickest, but will slice it next time for something diff. The au jus was nice and rich, loved it. Thank you for sharing this with us Kittencal.

Loved it...made it for my MIL's 85th birthday bash and it was a hit. It was funny, I had printed it and bought the ingredients...then I was talking to my husband asking him if he thought I should put sliced onions in it...we went back and forth and he said.."just follow the recipe" well I did, to a tee and it was fantastic! Thank you Kittencal! (It along with your Ceasar Salad recipe was eaten up in no time and people raved!) Thank you!

Another great gift from Kittencal! I recently made this crock pot full of meaty joy for poker night. Tough crowd! I used a vadalia onion (cut in half) instead of the onion powder and flakes to provide onion to put on the sandwiches. I also added 5 large carrots (roughly 2 inch cut) to add to the flavor profile and provide a little something to enjoy on the side. Both came out wonderfully flavored and I feel they provide a fuller flavor to the au jus. The low sodium soy and broth kept the salt level down but happily not totally absent. A few folks added salt to their au jus. A simple option that pleases everyone. Can't take it out later, so I advise the low sodium ingredients as written. Served with a choice of swiss or provolone melted on the rolls and plenty of napkins! The sloppy smiles around the table were all the testament I needed! Football potlucks are coming. Guess what I'll be bringing! :)

Thanks for yet another great recipe, Kitten!

Wow this was really good and easy to make. I made up the "broth" the night before and stored it in the fridge and then in the morning I put the roast and the broth in the crockpot. So it only took a minute to get this ready in the morning. I followed the recipe other then I used all beef broth instead of adding the water to cover. I added swiss to my sandwich and it was so yummy dipping it in the broth. Will make again. Great easy crockpot recipe.
