Only one problem, My 4# pot roast was done and tender in 6 hours on slow cooker.

I think 10 hours is too long. I made a 2.5 lb roast and it was well done in 8 hours. I suggest checking on the roast after 5 hours. After this recipe I will probably stick with onion soup mix.

This recipe was great! I was a little scared because I wasn't too sure about the canned gravy but it turned out great! Mine cooked for about 11 hours on low and it was the most tender roast I had ever had before! Great taste

I cooked the beef in olive oil instead of vegetable oil....

Delicious! The whole family loved it. My picky 5 year old even like the carrots for a change. I used chuck roast- more fat and more flavor. We don't like onions but want a little of the flavor so I just put in about 2 Tbsp. onion flakes. Could not find Campbell's gravy so we just used grocery store brand canned gravy and it was terrific.

I usually do the roast in the crock pot with the cream of mushroom soup but the gravy added a great flavor to the roast and veggies. I was afraid there wouldn't be enough liquid because the gravy comes out of the can pretty thick but it thinned out as it cooked and turned out great! I hate to see food go to waste so I also threw in the last of the celery I had on hand, about a half of a can of peas and a few crushed cloves of garlic. Just with I had some mushrooms I could have added too... Mmm Mmm good!

Wonderful - I did use 1 can gravy and 1 can cream of mush and added fresh mushrooms. Easy and phenomenal
