"Yes, another roast recipe, but SO VERY GOOD!!! TRY IT!"
Serving Size: 1 (306 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"This was outstanding. The beef was tender and the gravy was delicious. Next time, I will let out the rosemary for it did give a stronger flavor to the beef. Served it with mashed potatoes and butter glazed carrots. I didn't add the water because the 2 cups of wine was plenty. With crockpot cooking, you don't need as much liquid."
"This was sooo good. I used white wine instead of red wine. Since this was my first cooking with wine experience, I used 1 cup of wine to 1 cup of water. I had about 1-1/2 pounds of beef...2 at the very most. At the last 45 minutes or so I added 2 medium sized red potatoes that I had cut into quarters. The juices picked up a little bit of the potato taste. I think next time I make this I will use red wine and cook the potatoes separately. I liked the flavor of the juices before I added the potatoes a bit better. When I do the recipe again, I will review it again to let you know how it turns out. Thanks Rebekah!"
"Outstanding! My 3 lb roast was still somewhat frozen so cooked on high and was ready in just over 3 hours."
"Rebekah, I made this EXACTLY as the recipe calls for it to be made,I would not change a thing,it was delishous,and since it is made in a crockpot,it was so easy,and my Sunday dinner was a success. Thanks,Darlene Summers"
"This was really good. I usually try to avoid canned soups and powdered mixes, but I wanted to try this. I think the onion soup mix added a little bit of a chemical flavor. I will make this again and try using a mix of spices and regular sliced onion. I also used 1/2 marsala and 1/2 red wine as a PP suggested, and as that was all the red wine I had. That definitely bloomed out the flavor! This is a keeper, I think I'll just make subs for the onion soup mix and re-post. Thanks Bekah!"
"I'm happily giving this five stars on flavor! I didn't add the water and used a little less wine. I have no idea how much. I just eyeballed it. I also omitted the rosemary. It was delicious. I dumped butter gold potatos and carrots in the crockpot as well. It went on low for 8 hours. I tasted it at 6 hours and it was a little dry. So, I rearranged everything and 2 hours later it was perfect... so tender and so moist. My husband thought that there could be a little less red wine. But, I thought that it was perfect. I couldn't get the sauce to thicken in the crockpot. So, I just poured it in a saucepan on the stove to finish it up. I brought it to a boil and whisked it. Thanks for something other than cream of "something" condensed soup!"
"The only "complaint" I have about this terrific recipe is the amount of gravy it produces. Much more than needed but it is just as good over rice, noodles, chicken etc. so it does not go to watse. This was a great meal with mashed potatoes, baked carrots and peas. Thanks Bekah"
"I made this the other morning when I got home from work, by the time I got up the house smelled wonderful! I used a California red cabernet, and I forgot to add the Rosemary (too tired!) but it turned out fantastic. The meat was tender and moist, I loved the flavour of the sauce. I served it with mashed potatoes and lightly steamed broccoli."
"MAde this exactly as directed, except for substituting thyme for rosemary. I used a nice merlot for the wine. It turned out really delicious. The gravy was one of the best that I have ever tried. Served with roast potatoes and brussel sprouts for a truly delicious meal. Next time I will make mashed potatoes to soak up that fabulous gravy. Thanks!"
"This was really good. Usually I cook my roasts so they are a little pink. We like them a bit rare. When I first carved it I thought oh it's overcooked. It was sooooo tender though and the gravy was delicious. I will certainly make it this way again. Thanks for posting this recipe Bekah."
"Wow, this roast was SO good!! I made it exactly as it said and this is now our favorite roast recipe. Thanks for the great recipe!!"
"I made this recipe exactly as written and it was soooo good. Such a nice change from the normal "gravy" roasts. The smell alone is worth making this recipe."
"This was awful. Literally, the worst roast I have ever tasted. I've made several and this one was incredibly wine-y and just dry (cooked on low in a slow cooker). I should've known that this wouldn't be a good recipe when it didn't even call for garlic (I added some anyways). C'est la vie, I suppose. Not everyone has the same taste in what they consider "delicious"."
"I read alot of the reviews on this recipes and all the 5 stars convinced me to try it. I was kinda bummed at the result though. I think it was just my personal taste on this one. I added some baby carrots to the wine mixture and alcohol was almost over powering. Maybe I just used crappy wine. Maybe if I try this again I'll cut the wine down and add an onion. Overall this wasn't a a bad meal, just not my taste. The leftovers had a better flavor the next day too, so gives me hope for next time. Oh well."
"This was both my first roast and crock pot recipe I ever made. It was for my husbands birthday and it was yummy. I did not use the soup mix but du Ted and peppered the roast and pan sirred. I used fresh tyme, onions and garlic. I added quartered potatos and some baby carrots an hour before cooking was complete. It cooked for closer to seven hours (2ibs) roast. It was so tender that we did not need a knife. I used beef stock and a pior noir. Yummy!"
"Wonderful! I cut up the roast into beef cubes and browned them in vegetable oil. All I added was carrots and onions to the crock pot. Delicious. My husband loved it too. Served with buttermilk mashed potatoes and bread."
"Our favorite recipe. Replaced soup mix with celery seed and onions and some veggie broth. Super delicious and gone right away."

"Excellent!! I do not care for steak or roast, but finally a way that I enjoy it and can actually eat it in front of the kids without making funny faces!! Everyone enjoyed it. I did not have any rosemary so I left that out. The first time I made this I just used the red wine and it was very good. This time I only had 1 cup of red wine left so I also added 1 cup of marsala also and it was EXCELLENT!!! Thank you for a great dish."
"This was Fantastic!! I added an onion and some mushrooms for extra flavor and WOW! Thanks!"
