I made this for the second time last night and, with a few tweaks, it definitely gets 5 stars. Skip that whole searing step, it's not needed. Definitely skip that cooking on high for one hour thing! The first time I made it, I could tell it would have been delicious, if I hadn't needed one of my expensive steak knives to cut through it. So last night, I just dumped the roast in with the veggies, covered with the sauce, and left it on low for about 6-7 hours. I also added a bag of baby carrots to the pot. I didn't even need a knife last night. It was perfect! Love this easy to make, easy to love dish.

I would make this dish again. I was out of worchestire sauce so I used A-1 Barbecue sauce. It was very good.

I used a 4 1/2 boneless chuck roast studded with smashed garlic cloves (4-6, depending on size of clove) in a 6 qt crock pot. I skipped the searing of the roast. I doubled everything except the bell pepper and mushrooms as I wanted the veggies only for their flavor and moisture. I had half a fresh bell pepper so I just sliced it. I cooked it on low for 8 hours. I served it with roasted carrots, onions and Potato Inspirations bite-size potatoes. All the fam loved it! This is now my go-to pot roast recipe.

This pot roast was so dry, and in a crock pot?! I ended up having to cook it another 6 hours in beef broth in order for it to even be edible. I will NOT be making this recipe again!! Don't waste your time on this one.

My husband loved this dinner and it was so easy to prepare. Hubby said to make sure I keep the receipe.

A family favorite and so easy! I do sear to help keep the juices inside the meat. 8 hours in the crockpot, mashed potatoes, and a veggie on the side. I don't add veggies to the meat - just the sauce and the roast. I add a little gravy to the mix as well so that the sauce is a little thicker.
