This is a delicious and easy way to make a roast. I didn't have any Adolph's tenderizer, but the roast turned out nice and tender without it. The carrots and onions cooked in the gravy were very tasty. The gravy turned out more liquid than I like, so I thickened it with some cornstarch mixed in water. I think if I make this again I would probably use a tin of beef broth instead of the water.

Really good, super easy. We used mushroom soup that had roasted garlic in it and the Lipton Golden Onion variety of soup mix. Also, added a sliced green pepper and onions, and those were FANTASTIC to eat in the "gravy". GREAT flavor and super easy---walked in the door from work and supper was ready. Gotta love that! Thanks for a great recipe!

This made for a good dinner. I followed the recipe to a "T", even serving on wide egg noodles. I agree with two of the other reviewers, the sauce/gravy too thin. If I made this again, I would not use one can of water, I'd only use 1/2 can or less.

I'm not much for pot roast or stews, However this was very good. My dad loved it. The potato's were great with the gravy. I did serve it all over wide egg noodles. Will most likely have this again.

This was delicious and so easy. I had quite a bit of left over gravy and used it on pork chops in the crock pot. They turned out yummy. Thanks for this great recipe.

We thought his was great. I didn't use any tenderizer either. But the meat was great. I used little pearl onion. Even the kids like those. I think next time I might add some mushrooms, but I like the thought of peppers. I put potatos for everyone in it but next time we'll use mashed. What a great winter dinner with fresh rolls. Even my youngest loved it and he hates everything.

This roast turned out very tender and I also didn't have the Adolphs tenderizer but I seasoned the roast with salt, pepper and garlic powder too. I added some onions for extra flavor also. I followed Sherry F and added cornstarch to thicken the gravy. The only problem I had was that I put the veggies on top of the roast rather than under the roast so they were a tad bit crunchy. I made some garlic mashed potatoes and served with some french bread, made my family very happy. Thanks, this was easy and delicious!
