Made this in a smaller crockpot and cooked it longer, lovely taste and not too salty or too soupy, just like you said, a nice thick gravy! Next time I will cut the potatoes smaller because they were still a bit hard, I think that has to do with the crockpot size again.

I thought I would give this a try, and it turned out wonderful! Everyone loved it. The only thing I did different from the recipe was add mushrooms. This is an absolute keeper.

This was WONDERFUL! So easy and so flavorful. I didn't change the recipe at bit, except to use the option of bouillon instead of the beef paste. My husband and family LOVED it! My husband requested to have it for dinner again this evening (we still have some leftovers - I used a big roast)! Thanks so much for sharing this one!

I have made this over and over again ~ I do not add the carrots and potatoes just the roast and gravy ingredients. My family absolutely LOVES this roast. Serve with Mashed Potatoes and Corn, the gravy is wonderful! Not too salty

Please keep an eye out for my recipe, called "I stole Karen's Toss it in the crock pot and go roast. In memory of Clyde." If may take a couple of days for it to be processed. You might like it also.

I have made this recipe several times and it comes out excellent every time. It is my new go-to for pot roast! I use the beef bouillon cubes, since that is what I have on hand, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly (except that I usually use a chuck roast - my favorite cut). Perfection!

This was good! I made it exactly as written. It tasted just like pot roast I grew up with.

This is a great recipe. I used new potatoes instead of regular. The gravy it makes is delicious and you do not need to add any water. Next time I would use a pot roast instead of a london broil. The meat was a little tough.

I made this with a check roast and didn't have any beef base or bouillion, so I skipped it. It came out really nice. Even the kids ate it! I loved the combination of flavors. The sauce was a little runny, so I poured it into a saucepan and stirred in a little flour and some red wine for flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again. I probably wouldn't use it for such a nice cut of meat as London Broil though... Thanks!!!

very easy and good. i used cream of mushroom soup, a can of beef broth (i had neither of the other 2), a can of sliced potatoes, but no other changes - came out really yummy. i just wish the meat were easier to cut
