This was, by far, one of the best roasts I have ever made! My great-aunt always made the best roast, and I've never found a recipe that came close until now! Normally, I follow the recipe exactly...but considering my time limit, I had to make a few minor changes. I started cooking it late afternoon, so there wouldn't be enough time to cook it in the slow cooker. Instead, I cooked it in the oven. Rather than one can of CoM soup, I used two since I like a lot of gravy! I also used the beefy onion soup mix, as the regular onion soup mix is too "oniony" for my taste. I seared the roast per the recipe directions, and put the roast and drippings in the bag. I then added the carrots and red potatoes. After I spread the "gravy" generously over the roast, I put the rest on the veggies. I cooked it on 375 for about two hours, then took it out of the bag to test for doneness. i then stirred and covered the raost and veggies with tinfoil, and cooked it for another 2 hrs. at 350. The gravy the soup mixtures made were amazing!! There were no left overs! Other than the cooking method and extra can of soup, no changes need to be made!
