Easy Eye of Round Roast

"I was making and Eye of Round roast for New Years dinner, and needed a recipe for the slow cooker. I don't like onion soup, and that is what most of the slow cooker recipes use so I came up with this version. It smelled heavenly while cooking, and was fork tender when cooked. I used a package of Club House turkey gravy mix (reduced salt) for seasoning. It was a 25 gram package in Canada, so would be about 1 oz in the US. I always have some in the pantry as my daughter likes it with oven fries. Feel free to use whatever variety of mushrooms you have. The slow cooking and the wine help to tenderize the roast. Everyone raved over the end result. I hope you enjoy it."

Chef #8832636. My memebership on this site goes back to the days of recipezaar, so I have seen a lot of changes on the site over the years. I still miss the forums, they had a wealth of information in them, and it was great to be able to connect with other chefs through them. I don't think zmail exists anymore either, so I don't think we have any way of contacting other chefs now. I haven't been on the site much in the last few years, mainly because of the changes. I do still pop in to look for specific recipes. I enjoy cooking, and am passionate about baking.
