I just made this. I stuck to the recipe exactly. All I did was sautee the onion (slices) then in the same pan, I browned the roast. Put it all in the slow cooker, then covered the roast with baby carrots and cut up red potatoes. I was skeptical because of all the reviews saying it was salty -- so I added the potatoes (to make it a complete meal, and to soak up any extra salt I didn't want from the dressing mixes).
Mine cooked for exactly 8 hours and came out perfect!! I used a 2.6 lb roast and there was nothing left! My husband ate 3 plates of it and said it was a keeper. I thought the meat was incredibly tender and the potatoes and carrots flavorfull. I liked how insanely easy it was. Will definitely be making this again, but will buy a bigger roast! ;)
If anyone is worried about it being salty, just throw some potatoes in with everything. I didn't find it salty in the least. I don't know why you wouldn't want to make it with potatoes anyway, it's a complete meal that way! :)
