Need to specify in recipe directions NOT to use the entire amount of "house seasoning" for this recipe unless you want to be drinking water all night long and adding lemon, honey and whatever you can to kill the salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very very very good item not reviewed by moderator and published
Perfect every time. The searing is the key! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family really liked this recipe! My wife is not a "meat and potato" person, but she even complimented me when I made this. The roast turned out very tender and we used the liquid to make gravy. I did not have any Chardonnay, but I followed the recipe for everything else and it turned out great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Added some fresh thyme and rosemary, halved and seared the onions before adding to the pot instead of chopping, and cooked the whole thing on "high" for about 5 hours instead of 8. Very tender and flavorful and the broth was wonderful on mashed potatoes. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this recipe to the T. Very very good. I cooked the roast for 8 hour and it came out perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I actually made this pot roast this Easter and I really liked it! I don't have a crockpot so instead I used the lowest setting of my oven. I despise onions as well as celery so I didn't use any onions and someone suggested that I use cream of celery because I still get the juiciness for the roast with little to no celery taste. Someone also suggested I add frozen peas. Whomever suggested those things I thank you because it was very tasty! I worry about most recipes because a lot of them require inions and peppers so as a novice cook i'm always apprehensive about most recipes because i'm not sure what to use to substitute yet. However I am growing as an "experienced home cook" and this is one of the recipes that helped as well as all the helpful comments. THANKS EVERYONE!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was amazing. I only added 1/4 cup of water and next time, I won't add any. The wine and mushroom soup provided enough liquid. So tasty. I added carrots and potatos, and left out the onion. Perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Your recipes are always great Paula and you're quite a cookie yourself! Keep your chin up young lady! I love roast and theres nothing more tender and tasty than a crock pot roast. Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a fantastic recipe! I tweaked it a bit, according to other reviews on the site, adding more fresh garlic, fresh thyme, fresh veggies in last few hours of cooking, using a bit more wine, and deglazing the pan used to brown the roast using the wine and sliced onions. It was delicious, though I used a lot less water than called for due to the roast and veggies creating more juice. I will definitely make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
