I'm giving this 3 stars as a "base" recipe, but as written, I think the result would be too bland for my taste. As recommended by others, I added a bay leaf, 1.5 Tbsp worcestershire, and a dash of red wine to the gravy mixture. I also added an extra can of cream of mushroom soup and quite a lot of beef broth to cover the meat. I added quartered mushrooms toward to the gravy toward the end of cooking, but elected to cook carrots and mashed potatoes separately. I cooked a 2 3/4 lb roast for about 7.5 hours on low and it was just a little dry. I might make this again with changes, but it doesn't go in the "favorite" meal category.
