    This slow cooked beef provides you with a delicious gravy. We always have this meal with mounds of mashed potatoes with vegetables on the side. Great on a cold winter evening!

    I thought this recipe was way better than Awesome slow cooker pot roast. I load it up with potatoes and carrots to make it a more sustantial meal. I just throw everything in a slow cooker before I go to work on low and it is ready when we all get home.  -  23 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    VERY good roast! I used chuck roast and it turned out great. Per others, I did add a couple hearty dashes of all-season salt to the beef. Also, I didn't bother straining/making the gravy b/c the meat was so tender, it had already "shred" itself. With a side of "Baked Vegetables" and "Sweet Dinner Rolls" (both from this site) we ate until we we stuffed! Plan to use the little that's left of this stuff on sandwiches! Thanks for the great recipe J.Stewart!  -  10 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    One of the best slow-cooker pot roast recipes I have ever made. So easy and quick to put together and indeed makes the best gravy ever! I used a sirloin tip roast and will certainly make it again. The flavor is delicious without having to add many,many ingredients and spices. pc8  -  25 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
