"This is a wonderful roast It is so tender. It leaves a wonderful gravy, I thickened it with 2 T of four mixed with water. I served it with mashed potatoes. This is a recipe that I will make many times because it is so quick and easy."
"best roast i've ever had. i added a lot more water because i cooked it longer while i was away at workg."
"This is a super crockpot recipe. We enjoyed this very much and it was very easy to prepare before leaving for work and what a wonderful aroma when I came home. Thank you! Margie Brock"
"Yum. This started cooking pretty quickly since I have a rather large crock so I added about 1/2 c. water. The meat just fell apart and everyone loved it! So glad I had some left over. I saved all the juices and I will thicken them to serve with the leftovers. Would be great over buttered egg noodles...hmmm with some sour cream I'm thinking a really easy stroganoff. What a treat!!"
"I have been making this recipe for as long as I can remember! Every now and then I decide to try another recipe and none are as good as this one in my opinion!! I cook it without vegetables most of the time and sometimes I cook it with potatoes, carrots and onions like I am doing today because I need an easy one pot meal. I would like to give a several hints that work well for me. #1 brown your meat well before putting it in the crock pot, I was told this by a butcher and it really boosts the flavor of everything. #2 Use the Campbell's Healthy Request soup if you are looking for lower sodium, it is lower in salt than their Low Sodium soup. #3 If you are adding veggies it takes longer to cook. #4 Do not add any salt the soups have all the salt you will need! # 5 I like to use a rump roast also known as bottom round, it's leaner. #6 When your roast is just tender enought to slice take it out, slice it and put it back in and continue to cook it till really tender and the slices will absorb a lot of juice and flavor. You will still have plenty of juice for gravy. #7 I like my gravy thicked a little so while I have the roast out to slice it I sprinkle in a little tapioca and it thickens as it continues to cook. No need to mix it in cold water or anything first so super easy trick.
"Love these easy recipes for when I don't feel like fussing. I used a FROZEN chuck roast and cooked it on high for 4-5 hours. Instead of mushroom soup I used cream of celery soup. Thanks PMP!"
"This is a crock pot recipe I have been using for quite a while. In addition to rubbing the mix on the meat and pouring the soup over, I also slice an onion and put it in the pot with the roast. Instead of water, sometimes a 1/4 cup of wine adds a good flavor When making the gravy, add a can of mushrooms for added flavor."
"Delicious and easy -- what more could you ask for? I also needed to add a little water, but this is a wonderful meal."
"this is the same roast my mom makes and I have made it before as well. It has a great taste but I find the gravy a little too runny, other than that its good:)!"
"Simple to make, yummy to eat. My roast (6 lb rump roast, so I doubled the recipe) was a football -watching crowd-pleaser, from 15 months to 65 years old. I made exactly as directed. The gravy was thick and rich, and the roast was tender."
"I love how easy this was, no exotic ingredients. I used cream of chicken soup. Divine!"
"Deliciously Easy!! Will definitely make again! Ended up cooking it 4 hours on low and the last two hours on high-was a little short on time, but it was still fantastic! I also put a bag of frozen pearl onions (precooked in the micro for four minutes and drained) and some baby carrots on top sprinkled some garlic salt and pepper for the last two hours. My husband loved it and had seconds. I served it with Buttered Noodles ( http://www.food.com/recipe/buttered-egg-noodles-best-ever-11107 ) - awesome. I made a little gravy at the end with butter, flour, beef broth, and some drippings from the crock pot-went perfectly with everything. Would also be fabulous with mashed potatoes. Yum Yum"
"Fantastic recipe. I made this and it was so simple and tasted great. I served this with buttered noodles and cheesy broccoli. Thank you for sharing with us."
"Delicious! I added several chopped potatoes, a sliced onion and several handfuls of baby carrots, and so doubled the onion & mushroom soup. It smelled wonderful and the roast was super tender! Even with chopping the vegis, it only took about 10 minutes to throw together and was fantastic!! As easy as it gets - thank you so much!!"
"Super Easy! I called my husband from work Sat afternoon and it was done by dinner (we eat late). He didn't mind putting this together at all! We both loved it and of course it makes great leftovers! Thanks for sharing :)"
"FAB! Sooo EASY! I added a can of sliced mushrooms with a little of the juice, several pieces of garlic and 3 or 4 small onions cut into large chunks. I did all of this about midnight in 10 mminutes from start to finish and woke this moring to a D-E-V-I-N-E smelling house. Loved this easy meal. Thank you PMP!"
"This is an excellent (and EASY!) recipe. I am a beginner in the kitchen so any help I can get is appreciated. I put this together this morning, took about 10 seconds, switched the crock pot on low and cooked it for about 9 hours. The result? Probably the BEST Pot Roast I have ever tasted. I was so proud of myself for making it. The meat was so tender it just fell apart. The flavors were perfect, not too salty *used low sodium Cream of Mushroom. Served with some glazed carrots and dinner rolls (was too lazy to make mashed potatoes). Wonderful recipe. Try this one you won't be disappointed. Thanks PMP."
"I have made this recipe and my husband loves it! I always add baby carrots, potatoes, garlic, and pepper. The sauce is so amazing! left-overs were great as well"
"Awesome! I added a little water, and used my own homemade version of onion soup mix. Everyone loved it! The gravy was great over baked potatoes. Thank you PMP!"
"Very easy and very good flavor! I was a little reluctant at first, but saw all the good reviews, so I did it. I am glad I did, I'll be sharing this recipe with everyone! My fiance, said it was really good too. When I made roast before, the juice was always really runny and spice wise something was just missing. Thank you so much PMP! I'll be making this again and I'm sure my friends and family will too! God bless and Merry Christmas!"
