Thank you Virginia for an easy and delicious recipe!! I used fresh garlic in this and doubled the mushrooms. The gravy was exceptionally good! I let it cook in the oven for about 4 hours, at 325*. It was moist and tender. Will make this again!

I didn't have onion/mushroom so just used the onion. Also, did not have sweet sherry, so used merlot and added a couple of bay leaf. It was great!!! Thanks for the great recipe!!

It was the best chuck roast I've ever had. My husband loved it and my children, who normally would not eat anything like a roast, liked it. White vinegar is listed as an ingredient, however, there is no mention of it in the directions. I stirred it in with the soup mix, sherry, and coffee. I assume that was correct because it sure was good!

This was a good and simple recipe. I added more mushrooms and used half sherry and half maderia. Excellent and abundant gravy. Glad you posted this Virginia.

This recipe is fantastic. I have tried so many pot roast recipes and the all turned out tough. I didn't know pot roast could be hard to chew. Now I have a recipe that tastes great every time.

You are so right about this being one of the best pot roasts ever. I used a clove of garlic rather than the garlic salt, inserting slices into the slits. I didn't add extra salt as the soup mix already contained enough salt. Richly flavored and delicious.

Very Very good. My husband moaned when he tried it! I Substituted the garlic salt for real garlic, I used beef boullion and sauteed onions for the soup mix (I prefer 'real' ingredients'). And i used balsamic vinegar, its what I had. Very very good.

This has become a repeater for us. I've made it in the oven and in the crock pot (5-6 hours) with fantastic results. My husband's response..."mmm...this is the one with coffee!", which is funny because the coffee flavor doesn't stand out at all. We just know we love the one with coffee in it! Thanks!

FANTASTIC!! I used beef broth instead of the wine and skipped the vinegar. Amazingly easy and fantastic gravy! Will make again and again! I cooked in the crock pot.

I used some white wine we had and a cream of mushroom soup mix (I think the package was in Polish!). Was a very good roast. I made it in my Nesco, and we ate the leftovers the next night. Was just as good the second night as the first! Very tasty!
