This is made in a slow cooker... from a slow cooker book. Sounds good!

I didn't add the veggies - but served the meat with the au just (like a French dIp). While the gravy was GREAT, the meat was not. Dry and overcooked. Don't know if my Crock Pot cooked it too fast? Or maybe it was the cut of meat? Flavor should have been great with those gravy mixes, but just wasn't.....
