I saw this recipe was so highly rated that I just had to try it. My husband doesn't eat red meat so I made for my co-workers. I cut up 2 small onions, carrots and small red potatoes. I used everything the recipe states except swapped beef broth for the liquid and added 2 minced garlic cloves. I used a 3 pound roast. I would have never been able to fit a 5 pound in my crock pot.
I filled the crock pot as follows: onions first, some carrots, some potatoes, some of the sauce, roast, the rest of the sauce, then some carrots and potatoes on the top. I put it on low for about nine hours. The meat just fell apart. It was wonderful. I added some potatoes and carrots about 3 hours or half way mark and they were just right. The ones I had put in there when I started the roast were flavorful and a little mushy but still good. The gravy was just right. I even had some cornstarch ready to make it thicker but it didn't need it. It really does make it's own gravy. I would recommended adding ground pepper. If you leave it in there too long it turns into more of a beef stew. Which isn't a bad alternative. Now only if I could get my husband to eat it.
Needless to say everyone in the office loved it. They said it was the best they ever tasted and wanted to recipe. Thanks.
