    MA HIKER's Note:

    This is a very tender chuck roast with an amazing onion gravy. I serve it with egg noodles, warm bread and a green salad. I have never been a big fan of "roast beef" but this is to die for!

      This is the best chuck roast I've ever made. I served it with wide egg noodles and the gravy was to die for! Made for Review My Recipe Tag. Thank you MA for posting a winner.

      This was very good. My Dh made as written. Served with garkic mashed potatoes. The gravey was on the thin side for us. You could use a slurry to thicken it if you wanted. We didn't and it was yummy. We are using the left over onions & juices as a start for french onion soup tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe. We will make again.

      Great beef! I made half a recipe and had to add water as the juices were evaporating. I wanted some gravy for the meat and noodles. Served with a spinach salad. YUM.
