This was so-so. Neither my hubs or I were all that impressed (sorry!). I prefer Brenda Arnold's slow cooker pot roast by FAR. It's SO much easier to make gravy when you don't have to pick thru a slow cooker full of veggies. Don't get me wrong. I love a good pot roast with slow cooked veggies, but if given a choice, I like to serve mine on the side. As is, this recipe produces a VERY watered down gravy (ick!). I gave up trying to strain it to make gravy on the stovetop and instead, added 1 T cornstarch dissolved in a T of cold water to thicken. This helped somewhat, but our gravy was still quite runny. My final gripe (my hubs also agrees) is that this was terribly bland for our tastes. We like LOTS of flavor and this just didn't meet our expectations. Maybe this will work for you, but it did nothing for us. Thanks anyways, Katy. :-)
