This is really good! I didn't use the slow cooker tho as I got a late start to the day, but baked in the oven at 350* for a few hours instead. Using the mushroom/onion soup mix, I added about a half to 3/4 cup of water to the roasting pan before putting in the oven and it cooked up beautifully. The drippings made an excellent gravy, which I thickened up with just a bit of cornstarch and water. The meat was fork tender and delicious. Thanks for posting, next time I'll try the slow cooker! :)
I've read this recipe over and over and wonder where I went wrong. I used a 3.5 lb. chuck roast, followed the directions exactly and then cooked for 8 hours on low. While the flavor was great, the meat was dry. Plus there were barely enough drippings to make any gravy. I'd like to try this again, maybe adding a bit of water or beef stock. I'll be sure to post a new review when I try this, but thought I'd mention to others that some may want to try adding a bit of liquid to keep the roast moist. This dish is super easy to prepare and I'm hoping additional liquid will make the difference for me. Thanks for posting this recipe.
Nice flavour! I added 1/2 C water as I always put water in the crock pot to be sure I get alot of gravy. Had I not done this, I think there would not have been enough drippings to make gravy. I used about 3/4 of the pkg of soup mix too just a personal preference as I find it salty. Will make this again. Thx Carrol
This beef has the most amazing flavour. Imust admit I amnot a fan of raost beef, I always find it dry, but when I tried this receipe in my ne slow cooker, god it was delicious, and the smells in the house, yummy! I was a bit concerned about the roast burning so put half a cup of water in to slow cooker, other then that followed the receipe. Thanks so much, 3 hours on HIGH was enough for us. Will definently do again.
