I made this twice exactly by recipe. While it is very good, it had an odd taste that a few in the family did not like. I omitted the garlic and changed the soup to cream of celery (added fresh mushrooms with carrots, though), and it was a bit better, but still not perfect. I tried with the celery soup and no garlic, again, BUT added three tblsp. worceshire sauce (4 lb. roast) and THAT was the winning combo!
Everytime I made the roast, I added over one lb. of baby carrots and two stalks of celery to bottom of crockpot. After 7 or 8 hours, I added bite-sized cut red potatoes (skin on) on top. Cooked 9 to 10 hours every time for perfect doneness of veggies and meat, as well as moist meat. Cooking on LOW is best.
For those who don't like cream soups, replace with a can of beef broth, add the worceshire, and dredge the roast with flour before browning. This will give you a grand, flavorful result, too.
