No one ever believes me that this uses only the ingredients that it does because it comes out so tender and flavorful. Great recipe.

Good, but to salty. How can I cut that salt??
If you can find low sodium versions of any of the mixes that'd help. You could maybe add something sweet to balance it - like a pinch of sugar?

This is in my opinion a perfect way to prepare a beef roast. I browned the roast, deglazed the pan and added 1 can beef broth either 15 or 16 oz can. I then added a cup of water and mixed, then the packets of flavors and poured over roast, cooked on high a couple of hours, then low for a couple, roast simply fell apart, mixed some cornstarch and water and added juice to a pan on stove and made a pan of gravey, very tasty gravy will definately do this again.

This recipe is the easiest, most flavorful, delicious, tender and moist roast I've ever cooked. I've made it 2 times now. Even though it's just me and my husband, I buy a 4+ pound chuck roast, divide it after cooking into 3-4 meals and freeze them. It's wonderful leftover too. Also, I found that searing the roast before putting it in the crockpot helps keep it more moist

Easiest, no mess roast, and flavor is absolutely stunning to your taste buds. Also makes a wonderful zesty gravey for your potatoes.

This was very good -- in fact, I will probably do my pot roasts this way from now on. I've tried other pot roast slowcooker recipes and this one is the best I've tried. It was incredibly easy and tasted very, very good! I did increase the water amount to 2 cups and since I had a clove of garlic I wanted to get rid of, I sliced it very thinly, made slits in different parts of the roast and inserted the thin slices so that they cooked within it. Very outstanding recipe and will definately do it again!
