You really can't go wrong with this recipe. Easy to throw together and the gravy is TO DIE FOR. Got this recipe from Taste of Homes Light and Tasty Magazine Dec/Jan '05.

One of the best chuck roasts I've ever made!!! The flavors were perfect together. The meat cut with a fork. I made this exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing! Thanx for posting this!

YUMMY !!! This made the house smell so good . It made great gravy , it was NOT sweet as you might think , with all of that ketchup . I added some carrots to the bottom of my crockpot to go along with the roast ! I will be using this recipe again ! Perfect !!

I didn't like this much at all. My husband sort of liked it more then me, but not enough for me to make it again. I did run out of ketchup, so had to use a bit of chili sauce to make up for it, which may have adjusted the taste a bit, but I don't think it was enough to make a difference. It was weird tangy, and not enough sweet, so it tasted kind of funny, and not in a great way. We ate half of it and threw the rest away.
