We thought this was OK. We thought it could have used a lot more seasoning. This was very quick to put in the crockpot before going out the door in the morning.

Very easy and very tasty. I added some salt and pepper to the roast after browning. Enjoyed by all. Thank you.

I have made this 2x now, on the stovetop. Had to use regular cream of mushroom soup, just adde some onion and garlic powder. And as always some ketchup for tenderizing. Very good and super easy!
