I always go to your web site because it's so good. My husband will not eat any onions or garlic and so it's difficult to find something to substitute that will give me the flavor I like.

I can't wait to try this recipe. The comments of some reviewers and their recommended substitutes are very helpful to add flavor to the dish.I am more confident in cooking since I have discovered your videoed recipes.

I Love pot roast, and second the plea for low-sodium recipes. Does anyone have one to recommend?

How about some pot roast recipes that don't involve canned soup (too much salt and BPA from the can) or dry soup mix (too much salt) the whole idea of my cooking at home is to get away from cans and mixes that have preservatives and other unknown variables.

I cook with a similar recipe but use a packet of the mushroom/onion soup mix instead. I cut slits into the roast and rub the soup mix well all over the meat and inside the slits. I don't bother searing the meat and I don't add water or broth. Instead, I pour a can of diced tomatoes with the liquid inside the can and it's very delicious. About 1 hour before the roast is done, however, I throw in my potatoes and carrots, because they come out too soggy during the 8 hours in the slow cooker.

How about some pot roast recipes that utilize something other than that dry onion soup mix. That is loaded with sodium--not very health conscience at all.

I need to make this gluten free so I use progressive cream of mushroom soup. Since it s not condensed, how much water do I use?

So my momma's best kept secret is out! She taught me how to make this when I got married and we have loved it ever since. It is super for serving to company because there is no way to mess it up and it is universally appealing. Since there are many varieties of 'cream of...' soups and several types of Lipton dry soup mixes, you can vary the recipe a bit by substituting them.
