"I'm going to praise myself for a minute here and say this really is the best tasting roast EVER. AND I challenge everyone to check it out. The flavor is amazing, THE LEFT OVERS, ESPECIALLY THE POTATOES, WERE AWESOME THE NEXT DAY!!!!!! please NOTE** regarding the review received--I tried making it with a packet of dry Italian seasoning mix and it was just as good!"

  1. This roast is terrific!! We used our gravy/fat separator for the yummy gravy to get rid of the fat. IT was awesome!! We will make this again!!
  2. Very good. A great comfort dish that doesn't heat up the kitchen. I added in some carrots to make it a complete meal. Thanks!
  3. I'm sorry, but that was the worst meal I've ever made. Waste of money. My husbands clam omlet is better. To think, I spent all that money, in these time of hardship. Sorry
  4. My family absolutely enjoyed this crock pot recipe. The flavor is Fantastic! It isn't over powering with the Onion Soup. I don't know what the one review was about the oil and grease. I skimmed off the fat and the gravy wasn't fatty at all. I would suggest you give this recipe a try.
  5. We had this for dinner last night and enjoyed it. I made as posted but did not use the juice over the meat ~ just personal preference. The meat and potatoes were yummy. This is very easy to put together. Thanks for posting!


I am the mother of three beautiful children, two boys and a baby girl. Between them and my awesome husband of 8 years, I'm one of the most greatful people you'll ever meet! I love photography expecially Black and White, good T.V. series, and COOKING!!! My only down fall is my mother raised me a picky eater, I wish I had the courage to try so many different foods. I love the cookbook with the recipes from the backs of labels, can't think of the name. I also love looking thru friends and family members recipe boxes!! We own a Floor maintence business where it seems I spend 25 hours a day! actually it's more like 12 but by the time I get home it feels that way, and for that reason alone I love, love, love my slow-cooker. Sundays I try to go all out and make something extra special. I love to read, I love to cook and I love to play firefighter with my kids and the water hose in the front yard on a sunny day! I have so many pet peeves it's sad, for starters I hate rude fast food employees, people who see you waiting to get by and just stand in the way. I can't stand when people zoom out in traffic like they really have somewhere to get then just mosey along going 5 miles below the limit then turn off with no blinker, or when people call my phone number and ask "who's this?" like I called them!!?? whats that about? anywayz, I could go on and on.... I'm happy to have found Zaar and wish I would have sooner. Love the recipes, the people and the pictures! God bless the creaters of Recipezaar, I LUV YOU!!!
