I made this recipe on 11/19/10 for the Crockpot/Rice Cooker Event in KK's Forum. Since my SO and I don't care for celery it was left out and some celery powder was added to the soup/herb mixture.Other than that change the recipe was made as it was written.I started cooking it at 9 a.m. but by 3 p.m. it still was pretty tough. So I put it on high for 2 hours and it worked just fine. I know this was supposed to be zesty, but I thought it was just o.k., my SO seemed to like it and that's why it was given 4 stars.Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
Talk about a Good Home Cook Meal! This recipe hits the spot. The tomato soup and beef drippings makes a really nice gravy. The only thing I changed was to add two Tablespoons of Quick Cooking Tapioca at the beginning so that the gravy would be nice and thick like a stew done on the stove. Served with homemade bread and side salad and you are set to go.
This was my first ever attempt at a pot roast. My husband loved this recipe! I didn't have any potatoes so I added extra carrots and celery and added some onion wedges. I also wanted a heartier broth so I added a can of diced tomatoes. The seasonings were perfect as is. I served this with mashed potatoes (the dried kind, all I had on hand). We'll definitely make this again, but will probably add more veggies.
This was very good, and had a lot more flavor than I expected. I didn't have any carrots or celery on hand, but I did add sliced onions in with the potatoes. This was a great meal after a long day at work- I just came home and heated up some green beans, and dinner was ready! Thanks!
