I made this last night. My crockpot cracked after 10 years! It was the best roast I have ever made in the oven. Normally I have to use the crockpot because I dry them out in the oven. I made one change though I didn't use the packet of onion soup mix. I made my own with onion flakes, onion powder, a little organic better than bouillon beef base, garlic, parsley, and fresh ground pepper. The bouillon has a lot of sodium but you can control it by how much you use. I added a mushroom soup box to the mix which made a thick paste. Then I added red wine to the roast to deglaze and water to my spice mix to get the texture I wanted. Outstanding! I also added red potatoes, carrots, and onions in the last hour. Steamed some green beans with garlic and olive oil. Done!
