I made this last night for my husband. This is one of the simplest, tastiest meals you can make in a crockpot. Even if you don't like mushrooms, give this recipe a try -- you really can't taste them in the cream of mushroom soup.

Wow! If I could give this more than 5 stars I would! I used 1/3 of a cup of red wine and 1/3 cup water so I could have more gravy and it turned out perfect! It smelled so good while it was cooking. I served it with mashed potatoes and my meat and potatoes loving DH said MMMM!! He actually asked questions about how I made it! He gave me alot of compliments about this and said he would like to have it at least once a week! It was so easy and delicious. I might teach him how to make it since he liked it so much! :)

This is the best crock-pot roast I have ever tried. My family was amazed. The meat was extremely tender and the gravy had an awesome flavor. I served the roast with mashed potatoes and there was plenty of gravy for that as well. Amazing how easy this was. Thank-you.
