  • “This roast is wonderful and so easy.My family loved it.”

  • “Great roast beef recipe, followed the instructions to a T and was rewarded with a delicious non greasy roast meal and with gravy too!Thanks for posting.”

  • “This was fantastic!My family loved it and the smell was incredible. I made it in my crockpot on low and used beer instead of water. I also had some finely chopped onions laying around and tossed them in (1/2 cup).After I took out the roast I added some dissolved cornstarch to the sauce in the crockpot to thicken it up.Perfection! Will definitely make again and pass the recipe along.”

  • “I was skeptical that something so simple could be as good as the reviews say, but it truly lives up to the hype!The roast was moist and tender, and the gravy was delicious!The first time I made this, I found it a bit too salty, so the second time, I used reduced-sodium cream of mushroom soup, and it was perfect!”

  • “This was an excellent dish…the gravy was sooo good. Thank you for a great dinner.”

  • “Fabulous!Used dark beer, golden mushroom soup and my own spices (didn’t have any onion soup mix in the house) – turned out great.So moist!Thanks so much for my new go-to roast beef recipe!”

  • “Very good! I didn’t use any soup mix as I made my own gravy afterwards. My boyfriend actually put this together for supper and it turned out great. He’s not really kitchen savvy and this was a nice easy recipe for him. He added some onions, carrots and potatoes about an hour before the roast was finished. We will definitely hold on to this recipe. Thanks :)”

  • “Amazing! My whole family loved this recipe, even the kids! I will be making this again! Thank you!”

  • “My dh & I love sirloin tip roast. We were thrilled with this dish.I have never made roast with soup before and was very pleasently surprised.It was quick and easy to make and it made the house smell great, all afternoon.I used the water option as my dh & I don’t drink beer.The roast was moist and tender, the gravy, robust and outstanding.Thanks for sharing your treasure :)”

  • “I love this recipe for so many reasons.First, I didn’t even have to cook it!I fell asleep this afternoon and woke up to a wonderful smell.My husband, smiling, said, “I’ve got a roast in the oven.”After picking myself up off the floor I went downstairs to a clean living room, clean laundry, and a WONDERFUL dinner.This meat is so tender.He served it over rice with a side of steamed broccoli.I will be taking naps more often in hopes of enjoying this wonderful meal in the future.Five stars for you and five points for hubby!Thanks!”

  • “Well Bill, first off throw out that water, it will rust your utensils. Basically the same way I prepare a Roast for our “Chidrens” Kids, Grand kids, and best of all a Great Grand Daugther that eats like an old Army Mule.My Wife and I are so glad to see that there are folks out there that don’t have to NUKE everything. It really improves the flavor and left overs (if any) make great sandwhiches that is if you have a big bottle of Horse Radish. Now you have my taste buds in an uproar so I will have to travel into town tomorrow and get me a hunk of BEEF. Thanks friend and keep them recipes coming.Cap’n Jack”

  • “Absolutely delicious!Can’t go wrong recipe.My company loved it and asked me to throw all other roast recipes away.”

  • “It had been YEARS since I’d had a oven-baked roast.I have always made mine in the crockpot.IT WAS DELICIOUS…absolutely delectable.It also reaffirms my believe that cooking with alcohol makes everything better!I made a small 2 lbs roast and threw in some whole red potatoes and onions I needed to use.Next time, I will throw those in the oven a little early.They were a little underdone for me and I the roast was just perfect, so I wouldn’t want it cooked any longer.Thanks for the great recipe!I do the onion soup and a coke in the crockpot all the time, but I’ll have to switch to beer!”

  • “This was tasty, although now I think I would have preferred more of a mushroom “sauce”, rather than the creamy soup.I used Copycat Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix #24952 to rub on the meat.I will probably make this again, but just change up the mushroom gravy a little.”

  • “I have made this recipe twice.The first time I put the onion soup mix on the meat and let it sit in frig overnite.Then cooked in oven as directed and ate it.It was a bit too salty for me, but hubby liked it.The second time, I did not pretreat the meat and I only used a half package of the onion soup mix.Plus I added about a half of a fresh chopped onion that I had.I cooked it through and then refrigerated it to eat the next day.I loved it!The gravy was more developed and it was perfect.Next time I will try with the 1/2 pkg, but eat it the same day to see if that makes the difference.This recipe is a keeper!”

  • “Very good roast. I didn’t quite like the gravy the first day, but I had some leftovers for lunch, and gravy was a lot better ! My husband loved it, and this is great, since he’s used to the traditionnal roast ! He loved the new recipe. This is definetly a keeper.”

  • “Brother Bill you did great!I have made my roasts before using the soup mix with beer but never thought to add the can of soup too. WOW – very, very good. Smelled great while cooking and DH & DS had 3 helpings.I did add potatoes, carrots & onions in the last hour and everything was just great.Thanks so much for an awesome recipe that I will be making again!”

  • “This had good flavor. I added fresh mushrooms and served with mashed potatoes.”

  • “This is GREAT! I made this for dinner last night, (I made 2 small roasts that equaled 4lbs) One venison and one beef, I did double the ingred. tho but it was wonderful! The whole family just raved about this, and will the left overs I am making a stew… the gravy was great, I used 2 cans of gravy and then made some homemade gravy and mixed together, there is tons and was put to great use! Thanks for sharing…”
