What a great tasting roast! The soups and spices add a wonderful flavor. I followed your suggestion and served this with mashed potatoes. A wonderful meal for a cold day. Thanks again Lori for another great recipe. :-)

Smelled heavenly while cooking. My 3 pound roast turned out very tender after about 7 hours on low. I skimmed off the fat on top and used the gravy when serving. I did not add the teaspoons of salt and pepper as the soups are usually salty enought for me, and I was need to add any. Thanks for posting.

Probably chef error, but my roast turned out very tough & dry. I figured it was the crock pot, what could I possibly do wrong?! The gravy is really more an "au Jus" sauce, but is great. I'll try again with a different cut of meat.
