Really great and easy. I usually use red wine but liked it very much with sherry for a change (not cooking sherry buy a decent brand then you can have some for yourself). The meat and the gravy is excellent! Read More

Excellent roast beef recipe and SO easy. The only thing I did differently was quickly browned my chuck roast on all sides in a little olive oil before placing in crockpot. Since we are mushrooms lovers I sautéed some fresh mushrooms in the same pan and added them as well. Read More

Absolutely simple & delicious! Patted the chuck roast down with flour on both sides before placing it in the crockpot. This eliminated having to thicken the gravy at the end. Perfect! Read More

So heres the deal....I don't own a crock pot, because my hubby hates them he thinks the house is going to burn down and food comes out mushy. So I had to improvise because the ingredients looked good. I cooked at 350 for 2 hours in the oven with all ingredients and added fresh onion and garlic and used 1/2 of the onion soup mix as a rub. What I will do differently is add the soup and broth 3/4 to half way through because my roast came out well done on the bottom and med rare on the top, which kind of worked out for us because he likes well done and I like rare. We'll see next time, will definitely make again. Read More

We made this last night---and it was soooooooo good!! I added some more mushrooms to the mix (1 jar drained) and about an hour before serving I added some diluted cornstarch to thicken the gravy. As sides we had garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed garlic green beans. We will certainly be making this again! Read More
