Not a fan of canned cream-ofs...sodium overload. I use only Celtic sea salt as it's a balance of trace minerals along with natural sodium which doesn't disturb the body's natural mineral levels.

This recipe was awesome and easy! I used it on a smaller cut of beef so I had excess gravy and veggies which I froze. Very high;y recommended.

I agree with those who don't use soup or soup mixes. I put whole carrots on the bottom, cut mushrooms around the roast, and a can of beer. Throw away the carrots, and blend the mushrooms with the liquid and flour for a great gravy.

Hey Bill I never use that dry soup onion mix. I have the time to make stocks from scratch, which I then freeze and use as needed. I also find Goya beef boullion to a good flavor booster. Bon Appetit Todd

Try a can of condensed milk, or heavy cream along with a dozen or so sliced mushrooms, dehydrated onion or diced yellow onion, some dried thyme, chopped garlic or garlic powder to taste, and a couple of dashes of worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to taste. You may need to thicken the gravy after removing the meat with a cornstarch slurry (2 T of cornstarch mixed with cold water or milk).

i was thinking also about the salt content...if you make your own cream of "____" soup ,available on this website, plus your own onion soup mix...again, you will dramatically drop the sodium....and tastes just as good!

Make this all the time and we all love it! I add a few packets of G washington beef broth for richer gravy....

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?
