If I could give this more than 5 stars, I most certainly would! Fabulous recipe! I used the oven method, but only used 1 large onion as well as tying in fresh thyme into the herb bundle. The aroma was almost unbearable. Delicious! :)
AMAZING!!! I made it in the oven and it turned out sooooo goood. I don't usually like onions much but they were delicious in the gravy. This is a recipe I will make over and over.. =)
So much better than the mushroom soup/dry onion soup pot roast that I've been making for years. This recipe seems healthier and has become our new favorite. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
I agree with the other reviewers. It is a great recipe and I can't stand using anything Lipton when pulling most of these ingredients together on the fly is easy. It reminded me of the way my mom would have made it when I was younger 30 some years ago. I added potatoes and carrots and regular celery. I left out the nutmeg and added rosemary. What I liked most is that it wasn't overly salty (like Lipton seasonings), or overly tomato-ey or overly soy sauce flavored. It really just seemed to let the flavor of the beef come out.
This was tasty. I think it was the nutmeg that really made it different and truly savory. However, it was a tad on the salty side. In the future, I'll leave out the salt and use broth instead of bouillon. I also didn't have the fresh herbs or celery, so I used dried herbs and no celery tops. Still had a great flavor.
