Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally awesome flavor slow cooker beef roast!!! I'm usually disappointed in sauces in a jar, but this was sooo delicious. I used beef chuck roast, added fresh mushrooms, cooked low (best method for tenderness) and wow, can hardly wait to try it in meatloaf. PLEASE, PLEASE don't stop making this!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from savory roast beef I loved this dish. I used filet mignon and it was so so tender. The flavor was wonderful. I served it with garlic mashed potatoes. Very very easy to make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pot Roast Entire family loved the pot roast. It smelled a little funny while cooking, but it was a big hit in our house. The leftovers where even better!
