    I will try this but I would add some red wine to get the simmer going. Also this is high in sodium so I wouldn't add extra seasoning, the onion soup is enought.

    Luanne, I think that calorie count must be missing a zero. As for the liquid, the onion will release its juices as it softens and the roast will also - I usually get 1-2 cups of drippings from a roast beef or chicken done 'dry' in the crockpot. If you want more gravy than that you can pour a can of Healthy Request Cream soup over it all (any type - just be sure to use HR so it doesn't make it too salty.)

    BTW, I skip the seasoned salt -- for us I find that added salt on top of the dry onion soup is too salty.

    the calorie error is most likely because the amount of rump roast is not listed (I would guess 3.5 lbs) is ringing up in ounces--this would seriously impair your calorie count!

    I looked up calories for rump roast On Livestrong site: Rump Roast has 160 calories in a 4oz serving, so then it can go from there with the seasonings etc...

    My meat came out too tough. I used Adolph's before putting in the crock pot. Use a different cut of meat next time? Other ideas?

    These crock pot recipes never suggest you brown the meat before adding to the pot, what do these meals look like when done

    The meat came out tough and dry. So browning the meat prior to putting in the crockpot can help prevent this?

    @Lelia- Rebecca and Allison are right that that meat will form it's own juices as it cooks in the crock-pot. If you are concerned about it you could always add 1/4 cup beef broth, water or red wine (as anonymous stated) to help the juices begin to form and to prevent the meat from burning or drying out.

    @Nancy- Please see my note above regarding adding a liquid to your crock-pot when cooking this. Also make sure that you are cooking this on low for approximately 8 hours. If you have an older model crock-pot, it may tend to cook high and may need to be replaced. To check if your crock-pot is cooking too high use a thermometer to check that the liquid is reaching the proper ‘simmering’ temperature of 209 degrees. And yes, I agree with Michael's tip about pan searing the meat before adding it to the crock-pot. Not only will this give the meat a nice color, it will help seal in the natural juices to help the meat remain tender.

    This recipe was so easy that my 10 year old son helped. It was a smash hit with the family!

    I spread a can of chopped green chilis on top of the soup mix. It came out with amazing flavor! perfect for shredded beef for tacos, burritos, or even taco salad.

    Loved this! Super easy, did add about 1/2 cup water in bottom of crock pot so wouldn't be tough or burnt. Will definitely fit again!

    This was so easy and turned out great. I used a inexpensive roast and followed the recipe as is. It was very most. Just fell apart. And tons of flavor. It was so easy. I will definitely make this again.

    This works really well, I used garlic salt instead of regular salt, added carrots and celery for flavor and texture. It turned out really good.

    I've used this recipe with Chuck Roast. I add quartered potatoes and carrots along with a little water on top of the onion soup mix. It's always tender and delish!

    I use this all the time when I make my roast, except no salt or pepper or additional onions. I also add cream of mushroom and cream of celery for a delicious gravy. If you add carrots and potatoes, then you have an easy and yummy beef stew.

    Very yummy! I was worried about putting it in all day with no liquids, but the roast and onions produced quite a bit.
