This was definitely easy to make and my family loved the new taste. My old recipe was boring for them. I will make this again we all loved it. We had a lot of meet left over so we used it for sandwiches the next day. I liked adding the steak sauce, I used A1, it is our family favorite. Very yummy!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
LifeLongWeighDoc, I'd leave out the brown sugar too. Oh, so did Sandra, did you follow the recipie? Did you use frozen veggies? devedsmith also didn't follow it either. The whole purpose of Sandras meals is to make them quick and easy with ingreadiants you probably have in your pantry, not spend all day making broths, sauces and soups. Try the new cream of onion soup by Cambels in place of cream of mushroom or celery in any recipie, it is a great new flavor.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was very easy and convenient, but the vegetables were over cooked and the gravy was too sweet. I will make it again, but would likely significantly decrease the brown sugar and cook the meat for the entire time and add the veggies in the last 1 to 2 hours. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy and extremely flavorful. I used fresh baby carrots instead of frozen. The fam loved it; and I will definitely make it again. The best, most tender way to prepare a roast. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Huh? Why all the extra ingredients? Canned soup? Soup MIX? BOTH soups contain extra sodium and MSG which is simply not needed for a classic recipe. Exclude the soups, double the amount of broth, saute the veggs before using them and it will turn out amazing.. Made this recipe without those horrible corporate soups and this turned out delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't eat beef, but I made this for my husband for Fathers day. He and the kids totally enjoyed it. All made the tasty noises they save for the truly yummy stuff. Thanks Sandra Lee! I did leave out the onions and mushrooms because my husband doesn't like these. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was a really good recipe. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of the celery and used the whole can of beef broth. Also, I didn't use the pearl onions. It was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super easy & yummy - a definite keeper. SPECIAL NOTE: Does your crock pot lid fit loosely like (all of mine? I ALWAYS cover the crock pot w/ foil then put the lid on, otherwise the meal takes forever (and the carrots are never tender. My adjustments/shortcuts: Added some parsley, used fresh unpeeled carrots (far better taste - just wash & cut, unpeeled red potatoes (just wash & cut, whole mushrooms (picky eaters can dig them out, peeled boiling onions (just peel & toss in - other picky eaters can dig them out. I also used a dry pan (no oil to sear the meat - searing the meat is a must for flavor. Personal note: I do not buy beef broth, it's too expensive. Buy concentrated beef broth, it's roughly the same price but you get a lot more for your money - the ratio is on the bottle. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not Great! Definetly not a 3-4 hour slow cooker recipe....I agree with others. 9 hours on low.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty! Some small changes to make even better: Add a few cabbage leaves to bottom of slow cooker then throw them away; Use red potatoes because they hold up perfectly. Reduce slightly the amount of steak sauce because it's a strong flavor. Add a bay leaf. Sear the beef in a dry, hot pan before adding it to the cooker. Enjoy! It was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
