My husband hates bottom round roast. Says it's always tough. I made this for him and he loved it, then I told him what it was. He couldn't believe it! It was fork tender and had an awesome flavor.

This was my first time using a crockpot, i was looking for something easy with very few ingretients... This recipe was super easy to follow, i picked it because i had all the ingredients in my pantry. I have used this recipe two times in the last month, yes! I love it that much!! However the first time i made it the meat turned out on the dry side but very tender, the second time i made it I seared the meat on all side as another member suggested... And oh boy it came out so juicy and delicious!! I also added mushrooms and 2 cloves of garlic. I used spicy BBQ sauce, it was sweet and spicy!! sooo good!! This recipe is a keeper!!!

This is an excellent recipe! I was really worried that it would be too salty with that much garlic salt and too peppery with that much pepper, but it was just right. My son won't eat most roast recipes, but he ate this one. I shredded the beef & let him think it was pulled pork BBQ at first. He really liked it. Thanks for a great & easy recipe!

I did really enjoy this recipe and I too thought it might come out a bit salty/peppery but I wanted to give it a whirl since it was going to be in the slow cooker all day. The flavors blended together super great and I went with a vidalia onion bar b cue sauce. I omitted the carrots however and it was odd that I felt I tasted carrots anyway. lol
I will be using this recipe again, however I will definately make a point to sear the roast first as it did turn out very tender, I found it to be dry at the same time.
