Loved this! I had a 4 pound rump roast, twice as big as called for in the recipe, so I made a few adjustments. First, I used beefy onion soup mix since that's what I had and I much prefer it over the plain onion soup mix anyway. I did add the packet of au jus gravy mix, 1/2 cup red wine for half of the water, and for extra liquid to accomodate the larger roast, an 8-oz. carton of beef stock. I also added 2 tsp. of Italian seasoning. I cooked it on low, about 7 hours, then chilled it overnight. The cold meat is firm and slices perfectly, which I like better than shredding it. The meat was melt in your mouth tender and richly flavorful, as was the au jus, which I served in ramekins alongside the sandwich. On a buttered hoagie or sub roll, this was just delicious, even without the cheese!
