The vegetable soup packet made this come out tasting sort of artificial (I even used Knorr).
The roast turned our tender and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly. It was very flavorful and the broth made wonderful gravy.
So easy and delicious! I used a 1.7ish lb tri-tip (biggest one the store had at that time). Cooked it on low for 7 hours, which was plenty of time. I ended up only using about 2 russet potatoes, because 4 produced too much. If you like your veggies to be a bit firmer, I'd all them later or reduce the cooking time - mine turned out VERY soft, which I like, so it was OK but I can see some people finding them too mushy. I also seasoned with salt and pepper at the end. So simple and amazing! Will definitely make again.
This is incredibly good and so simple to prepare! I loved that the gravy was not too heavy or salty, yet very flavorful. I don't think I've ever enjoyed the taste of the potatoes in a pot roast recipe as I did with this one. I did dust the roast with flour, salt, and pepper and browned it before placing it in the slow cooker. I was afraid the gravy would get too runny, and the flour would help thicken it, but I'm not 100% sure if it was required. Highly recommend this - thanks for sharing!
This was delicious! I did tweak it a bit by browning the roast first after seasoning with salt and pepper prior to putting into the crockpot, I also added thyme and rosemary. I did add one more package of vegetable dry soup mix just to add more flavor. I also wanted a thicker sauce so I did thicken with cornstarch powder and it came out perfect! Will definitely try this again! Thank you for this recipe!
LOVED THIS RECIPE!!! Made it last night, family couldn't get enough. I did not put the onion in it & I did add a bit of red wine. Thank you so much!
My family and I loved this. I did not use the vegetable soup packet or the flour. I used 2 cups of beef broth instead of 1 1/2. I am making it again tomorrow.
Soooo good. I did add two peeled cloves of garlic, and used whole small red potatoes, but did everything else as directed. The au jus was readily soaked up by the "smashed" potatoes and it was a hit. Thanks for the recipe!
WOW !!! It was easy. followed the recipe exactly. Followed the instructions, and ingredients exactly, went out shopping, came back and had this wonderful dinner with the family. The taste was FABULOUS. Thanks. A keeper.
Easiest and tastiest roast I've had in a long time! I just left it "au jus" and it was terrific! Definitely a keeper; thanks loads, Tasha
