  1. My family LOVED this! I didn't have Golden Mushroon soup so I used regular cream of mushroom and I only had French onion soup mix so substituted that also. When I was about to serve I took the meat and veggies out and thickened the gravy in a pot. The gravy was the hight point - I had to stop my family from putting it into a cup and drinking it! Hubby said, "Add that one to your repetoire honey!" Yes sir!
  2. This was an easy and great recipe. I mostly followed the direction as listed except for I ended up only having enough room for 2 potatoes. I cooked on low for about 7.5 hours and everything turned out perfectly cooked and the meat was very tender. There was enough liquid for plenty of gravy. Thank you for sharing. Now I have a reason to use my crock pot!
  3. I made this yesterday. OMG! My roast was just over 2 lbs. No celery, so I rubbed the roast in celery salt and browned in some ghee. I did't have enough carrots on hand, so I used what I had and about tripled the potatoes called for. No golden mushroom, used cream of mushroom, no onion, used two tablespoons dried onion, no horseradish....googled substitute, used wasabi. Forgot to turn it off, cooked an extra hour. My house never smelled this good before and it was delish. There was a lot of 'juice' from the beef. I am going to freeze it and mash it into potatoes later.... yum
  4. I didn't have any horseradish but this was super tender, had good flavor, and the kids loved it. Will do again!
  5. Great crockpot roast recipe...I used beefy mushroom soup as that is what I had in my pantry... I did add 1/2 cup red wine and cut down on the water...turned out perfect...loved the gravy.


  1. I changed this recipe to use up what I had in the fridge. I used pork chops instead of chuck roast and I left out the celery and horseradish
  2. First off I should admit that I bought too lean a roast. I picked up a sirloin roast instead of a chuck roast...I'm not good with purchasing chunks of meat and forgot what I needed. I only subbed a couple of other things--didn't have onion soup mix so I used a pkt of McCormick Pot Roast Seasoning and used beef stock for the water. The potatoes were Yukon Gold scrubbed, skin on and quartered. Followed everything to the letter aside from those things and cooked on low for 8 hours. The gravy and veggies were awesome:) but since the meat was so lean it became tough. I didn't want to give up so I cut it into chunks and topped of with about 1 c of beef stock and cranked it up for another 8 hours while I went to work. The meat was tender and shredding apart and the potatoes were actually still holding up. This is a great recipe! Buy the right cut of meat and save yourself the extra 8 hours of cooking though:lol: Love the horseradish in the mix, adds a little tang to the gravy. Thanks for such an easy recipe!


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
