Made this tonight with a venison roast. It was delicious! I served it with sour cream for the potatoes and meat and an extra side vegetable.

I made this exactly as written but it tasted very bland to me.. I had to jack up the gravy by adding beef broth, more salt and even some packet gravy mixes. I'm not one of those "over-salters" either.. but it needed it! Sorry but not for me. :/

Mmmm,mmmm, good! I was looking for something different than the hundreds of recipes that have mushroom gravy, since my family doesn't care for mushrooms. The sauce was rich and delicious. The only adjustment I had to make was that my chuck roast was still tough after cooking on high for five hours, so I had to cook it another five hours. Next time I'll start earlier and cook for 10-12 hours on low. Highly recommend this recipe. Surprised it doesn't have more reviews.

Made it exactly to the recipe shown and it was fabulous, both my husband & I enjoyed this and it made 2 extra meals for us. If anything, due to the sodium amount in the nutritional info, I would probably not add the salt to the spices and look for a low salt version of the cream of mushroom soup. Usually I don't make a recipe until it is tried and true and gets excellent ratings, but I am soooo glad I tried it.

My family loved this. Even my very picky 16 year old daughter liked it. She has requested it twice in one week. Very easy to prepare. Thanks for a great recipe!
