Not bad, liked the simplicity but it needed help to make it a 5 star for me. Added fresh chopped mushrooms, onions, rosemary, thyme, lots of pepper, and worshesterchire to add flavor, also cooked some vegitables right in the crock second time around was good

Really great and easy. I usually use red wine, but liked it very much with sherry for a change (not cooking sherry, buy a decent brand, then you can have some for yourself). The meat and the gravy is excellent!

Excellent roast beef recipe and SO easy. The only thing I did differently was quickly browned my chuck roast on all sides in a little olive oil before placing in crockpot. Since we are mushrooms lovers, I sautéed some fresh mushrooms in the same pan and added them as well.

Very good recipe. The meat was very tender and the gravy was delicioius. Will definately make again many times.

We made this last night---and it was soooooooo good!! I added some more mushrooms to the mix (1 jar drained) and about an hour before serving, I added some diluted cornstarch to thicken the gravy. As sides we had garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed garlic green beans. We will certainly be making this again!

I cooked this recipe according to directions and it was divine. This recipe was a big hit with my husband who was so impressed he immediately posted a picture on his Facebook labeled "My Wife has outdone herself again". If he only knew how simple it was. Thanks for sharing. I will be making this again.
