Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
One thing to note is that I have not tried the option of putting it on low for 8 hours. I followed the recipe exactly, but set it on high for 4 hours as recommended by the recipe. The result was the most tough, chewy, and inedible piece of beef I've ever had. After a lot of googling as to how this happened, basically the "high" setting cooked it too high too fast and the connective tissue couldn't melt properly resulting in an inedible dish. If you are going to cook this recipe, PUT IT ON LOW. Regardless of that, the sauce was a bit boring. There was no taste besides mushrooms. A bit bland and boring.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2013
I was really skeptical when I first saw that the recipe called for the meat to be cooked for only 4 hours on a LOW setting, especially since normally meat needs to be cooked for around 8 hours on low, but I decided to give it a try anyway. I can definitely confirm that 4 hours on LOW is completely fine. I couldn't find any dry onion soup mix, so instead I used 1 brown onion, thinly sliced. The red wine I used was the cheapest I could find (the meal still turned out great so don't worry about using your most expensive bottles) and cost about 10 dollars. With the juices from the cooking, I added a few gravy granules and made an incredibly rich gravy. Delicious!
