“I was making and Eye of Round roast for New Years dinner, and needed a recipe for the slow cooker. I don't like onion soup, and that is what most of the slow cooker recipes use so I came up with this version. It smelled heavenly while cooking, and was fork tender when cooked. I used a package of Club House turkey gravy mix (reduced salt) for seasoning. It was a 25 gram package in Canada, so would be about 1 oz in the US. I always have some in the pantry as my daughter likes it with oven fries. Feel free to use whatever variety of mushrooms you have. The slow cooking and the wine help to tenderize the roast. Everyone raved over the end result. I hope you enjoy it.”
