Easy, tasty recipe. Many reviewers found it too salty. I wonder if they are only using one roast? I used two roasts, totaling about 6 pounds. The flavor reminded me of a french dip, I plan to shred the second roast, make some tasty homemade bread, add some swiss cheese, and use the remaining broth as french dip. Or, perhaps do an open faced sandwich. Yum.

Tried this on Sunday and it was delicious!!! The meat melted in your mouth and it had so much flavor. I did, however. first season the roast with meat tenderizer, salt, pepper, garlic powder and then browned it in olive oil and the put in the crockpot. Then poured the mixture in the fry pan scrapping up the browned bits from the bottom poured over the meat and added another 1/4 cup of water. Cooked for 41/2 hrs and it was falling apart, so tender!! Will definitely make again!!!

Made according to recipe and we found it extremely spicy and salty. Not sure what happened here as I can see all the 5 star reviews. Glad everyone else enjoyed it!

Absolutely delicious and so very easy to make. The only change I made was to use two small arm roasts that I had on hand rather than chuck roast. The gravy was delicious. I will definitely be making this my go-to pot roast recipe from now on!

This is a super recipe. Since it's just the two of us I used just one roast. I also omitted the ranch dressing mix because we despise the flavor.

Delicious recipe, very easy to prepare. I used 3 cups of water rather than me 1/2 cup in the recipe. It was not salty. Good night
