  1. I made this last night for my husband. This is one of the simplest, tastiest meals you can make in a crockpot. Even if you don't like mushrooms, give this recipe a try -- you really can't taste them in the cream of mushroom soup.
  2. Wow! If I could give this more than 5 stars I would! I used 1/3 of a cup of red wine and 1/3 cup water so I could have more gravy and it turned out perfect! It smelled so good while it was cooking. I served it with mashed potatoes and my meat and potatoes loving DH said MMMM!! He actually asked questions about how I made it! He gave me alot of compliments about this and said he would like to have it at least once a week! It was so easy and delicious. I might teach him how to make it since he liked it so much! :)
  3. This is the best crock-pot roast I have ever tried. My family was amazed. The meat was extremely tender and the gravy had an awesome flavor. I served the roast with mashed potatoes and there was plenty of gravy for that as well. Amazing how easy this was. Thank-you.
  4. Was going to be out all day so this was perfect for dinner. Popped it in the crock pot this morning. Couldn't have been any easier to make. 5 stars for ease of preparation. The gravy didn't thicken up as much as I would have liked. The roast was so tender that it simply fell apart. I didn't eat any myself, but my family gave it 4 stars. Served with potatoes and veggies.
  5. This roast definitely deserves 5 stars for flavor, and how much easier could it get? I thought the gravy was awesome over mashed potatoes! I used regular soups, not low sodium. It was not at all salty. Just an FYI for those who may not be aware of this - Cooking wine has a lot of salt added to it to prolong shelf life - if that is what you used, it can make your food very salty. As a general rule, I will not cook with any wine that I would not drink on it's own. You definitely can NOT drink cooking wine, far too salty. Make sure when you make this dish you only use a drinking wine - not cooking wine.
