Made this for 'Zaar Day. Smelled wonderful while it cooked in the crockpot. Was so tender and juicy you could of cut it with a spoon. Very nice gravy. I didn't have fresh garlic on hand, so I used the minced kind in the jar. Definately a keeper recipe!

Great flavor! This roast just fell apart when I sliced it. Makes a lot of juice, which I'll used later this week as a soup base. I was afraid that it would be too salty with two packages of dry onion soup mix, but it was fine.
