"This would be excellent for a working family. You can add potatoes and carrots. When you get home your meal is done and all you have to do is thicken the juices and your meal is finished"

"I was going to submit this recipe, myself, cause I make it all the time; but, since I see you've already done so, I'll tell about the additions I make...I put about 2 pounds of the really small new potatoes (washed, unpeeled), 1 pound of baby carrots, and 1 onion, wedged, in the bottom of the Crock Pot, before adding the roast. I only add about 1/2 cup water (as per suggestions in my Crock Pot manual), and I don't salt it, right away (because I feel that the onion soup mix is already pretty salty). In the last 1/2 hour of cooking, I mix about 2 T cornstartch with a little water (maybe 1 T), and stir that in to the broth, and let the gravy cook, on high, until thickened. This is ALWAYS a perfect pot roast (no matter what kind of roast you use)! Thanks for posting!"
"This was AMAZING! My first 'real' Crock-pot meal. I placed baby carrots around the roast before adding the water and they cooked the whole time with the roast and turned out perfectly - 8hrs, low. I made gravy with the juices, cornstarch, flour, a little bit of garlic powder (I'd never done that before either) and it was also excellent. My husband and I had it again the next day - I tore up the meat, mixed it with the gravy and we put that on egg noodles. It was like stroganoff. I wished I had more! I will definitly make this again!"
"If you need something quick to throw in the crockpot , this is good. I used to make this early on in my marriage."
"This was easy to throw together before walking out the door this morning. I used beef broth instead of water. We enjoyed this."
"What a wonderful way to arrive home from work - the smell of a lovely roast cooking :) It's so quick and easy to prepare. There should never be any excuses that a great meal can't be made on a weekday... I could kiss whomever invented the Cock Pot! Leftovers made for great roast beef sandwiches!"
"Super easy and delish! I doubled this recipe and put my roasts in the crock frozen, added some baby carrots, cooked them on high for 2 hours before turning down to low - tender perfection was the result! Definetly will be turning to this recipe again and again... if not for the scrummy meal, my whole house smelled great! Thanks for a super recipe!"
"Duckit, Well Done! This recipe was so easy and so tasty! I was looking for a recipe that didn't have wine as an ingredient and so I tried yours. I am so glad I did!! I also added chunky carrots and potatoes to the top and they cooked perfectly in the broth. Thanks again."
"Great with potatoes and carrots. The Boy loved it. A wonderful favor, easy and delicious. Thank you......"
"This was so easy and delicious - I definitely will make this again - I had to let it cook for 10 hours on low because of work schedule - It was great!!!"
"This was simple and very good. I put it in our crockpot and let it cook all morning. I added some potatoes,celery,carrots,onion and a few slices of a green bell pepper. What a awesome armona through our house!! The roast was fork tender and I also used a recipe for the onion soup from Zaar recipe #44277. I had this soup made up for use such as this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. "
"I needed something that was easy and quick to put together for a busy day and ran across your recipe. It can't get any easier than this. I had a 3 pound roast and fixed some baked pototos with sour cream, and some greenbeans for sides and it hit the spot for us. The roast was very tender and moist and just fell apart on your plate. Nice flavor and easy to do. Thanks for the recipe. Chuck"
