"The aroma of this roast made DH and DS drool. I had a beautiful roast from the market and wanted to try simple spices yet aromatic! This is what the doctor ordered for a very chilly January day. DH and DS loved it!"
Serving Size: 1 (195 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"This was so easy and great tasting. My wife often complains that too many of my recipe choices have too much of a "kick" for her taste. This was a fanatastic balance of spices. The meat was fork tender. I too added about 1/2 cup red wine and turned the meat halfway through the cooking time. There was enough drippings to thicken on the stove (removing the large onion pieces first) to make a great gravy."
"Just made this last night and it turned out wonderful. Didn't have the sage, but seemed good to go without it! Only other thing I changed was that I removed a good portion of the fat first, and added approx 1/2 cup of liquid consisting of red wine, warm water and a little Lipton mushroom soup mix. Turned it over about halfway through, and cooked on low for about 6 hours total.Very good, everyone had seconds."
"This comes together quickly and is very tender and tasty. I made an onion gravy with the drippings and it is wonderful. Mine was done in 7 hours."
"Very Good and very easy. I made just as directed but used oregano instead of rosemary (funny about where I use rosemary) and added about a teaspoon of salt becaust it doesn't call for it in the recipe but I think it could have used more maybe 1 1/2 t. or 2 t. Thank you for the easy and delicious recipe."
"I made this for my family and NOBODY liked it at all. NOBODY. The herbs and seasoning turned us all off. It was horrible in our opinion. I am sorry, but.......yuck. We did not like this recipe at all. Not one bit. I cannot even give this recipe one star coz it was that bad."
"Made this yesterday for our dinner and the house smelled soooo good! When it came to eat the pot roast the recipe didn't disappoint us. Made as written only adding some carrots and potatoes under the pot roast to make a complete meal when taken out. Also served with recipe#146614#146614. Definately a keeper for my Favorites of 2013. Thank you for posting. Made for Recipe Swap #78 ~ July 2013."
"I loved the sage in the spice mixture! Great flavours and a really nice combination of spices. I added carrots and potatoes to the bottom of the crock pot for a complete meal. The gravy was delicious too. I will definitely make this again, thanks Connie!"
"I made this a meal in one by making a "nest" for the roast in the crock pot of potatoes, carrots, onions, green beans, tomatoes, and a splash of red wine. Turned out very nice."
"this was such a yummy treat on aq chilly day sooooo easy we will make this again"
"So delicious ,this is the only way i will ever make a bottom round roast ever a again. I added a 1/2 cup of red wine like another reviewer and 2 tsp's of salt and don't like rosemary or sage so i substituted parsley and oregano."
"Very good. Used for a for sandwiches with the dripings as au jus dip. Yummy!"
"The sage and rosemary really gives this roast a nice flavor. The house smelled great when I got home from work. I followed the recipe as written and added some carrots to the bottom of the crock pot along with the onions. The juice makes really good gravy. Made for August, 2009 Bevy Tag."
"My family and I loved this recipe. Halfway through cooking, I added some potatoes and a little salt to the pot and they came out wonderful. I also took Andrea in NH's suggestion and made gravy with the drippings. I think I might use a little less pepper next time though. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"If your in a rush in the morning this is the recipe you want to make as you can get it in the crockpot fast. The dry ingredients make a lot of rub. I do feel that I might reduce the sage and rosemary next time. Thanks for a no fuss meal. Made for *PAC Fall 2007* game"
"Another PAC 07 choice for me. This was our wonderful Sunday dinner. I would have never added rosemary to my roast so i was curious how it would taste. I was pleased with the taste. Great recipe !"
"This made my kitchen smell wonderful, it was hard to wait until dinner! I made this per recipe but added some salt, old habits die hard! The meat was fork tender and very flavorful. thanks for a great "Sunday dinner"."
"Very different from other roasts I did. The meat was very tender. And I like the taste of the seasonings. I added some red and green peppers."
