Not too bad. A little bland but I would make it again and add more seasonings. Thanks! Read More

At the 6 hour point I did a taste test and noticed that it was a little bland. Since my carrots needed a little more time I added a second packet of onion soup mix and another 1/2 cup water which made this a 5 star recipie!!! Read More

I am big on flavor so i took the advice of one review to use 2 packets of onion mix, plus extra water. It was great, and super quick to prepare, it is the newest member to my hubbies growing recipe file. Read More

This turned out wonderful for me. However I did add 2 packets of dry onion soup. I also went ahead and used 8 small potatoes and used baby carrots instead of 3 carrots cut up as the directions say. Read More

I used a 7 bone roast and threw in a bunch of carrots celery onions and garlic along with the onion soup mix. My husband who is indifferent to most food said "this is good!" I will be making this one again! Read More

Good I added Garlic and that helped. The liquid was a bit too low with the potatos on the bottom. Read More

This was ok. It tasted somewhat like grandmas recipe but it needs carrots and maybe some celery onion and a little heat to kick it up a notch. Cut back on the potatoes. They just went kinda mushy and didn't taste very good. Read More

YUUUUMMMYYYY! Never made a put roast in the crock pot but I'm glad I did. Here are the changes I made, not because I didn't trust your recipe but because these are the ingredients I had. I used a 3 lb. pork shoulder roast, a pint of roast beef stock, miniature carrots, a package of roast seasoning and made gravy with the drippings from the crock pot. Man was it good! Next time I will only use a half bag of dry onion soup mix or hold the onions. I actually thought of using french onion soup. Hmmm. Cooking to me is about experimenting and I thank you for a base to build on. Read More
