My teens aren't crazy about roasts, but this is one that they love! It does have a touch of sweetness to the gravy, so it might not be for you if you are a lover of spicy foods.

This is a keeper; the only ingredient I changed was to use Golden Mushroom Soup instead of Cream of Mushroom. The Golden Mushroom creates a much richer sauce with chunks of mushrooms. I trimmed the roast of fat and cut it up into serving size chunks (Not too small). I was thoroughly impressed with the flavor of the gravy and served it with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed veg’s. Everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing great recipe. Read More

I have to be honest with you the beef turned out pretty good. I left out the sugar. Read More

Haven't even eaten the meal yet, and just tasting the gravy, it will become a staple in my kitchen and a real favorite. Won my wife over with this meal as well! Only thing I did different is I had seared the chuck roast before placing it into the crock pot. This was a great Sunday football type meal! Read More

Made this last night, um, YUM! The gravy is so delicious and sweet just like we love. I added carrots 1 hour and a half before 6 hours was up, next time going to add potatoes. Made a baked potatoe and poured gravy over it, you definitely DO NOT NEED FLOUR. Read More

Hi - this is a recipe I submitted a long time ago. I would suggest you cook this on low for 8 hours or high for 4-5 hours. Also, a sear on the roast before placing into slow cooker does add more flavor, but not necessary. I do that when I have time. Read More

This was a great roast! The only changes I made was to add a double shot of Jameson's Irish Whiskey to it. It turned out great. Read More
