I have wanted to try this out for awhile, but my husband doesn't like pot roast. He went to supervise some high school kids on a service trip to Appalachia, so I decided to try it out on some friends. Based on reviews I made some modifications. I roughly chopped red onion and celery and placed on bottom of crock pot. I floured a chuck roast seasoned with garlic powder and black pepper and seared in mixture of olive oil and butter, then placed meat on the onions and celery. I deglazed the browning pan with some red wine and chicken broth and added the mushrooms soup and onion soup. I poured the soup mixture over the meat, cooked on high for 2 hours and low for 4. At the end I added some steamed carrots. Served it over egg noddles. It was a hit. The meat was tender and moist. The veggies were not mushy at all. I would make again.
