The Best Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Do you have a crockpot? If so, don't you just love it? If you don't have one, you might want to think about it. It's basically a fix and forget it dinner lifesaver! You cook your meat all day long and it become super tender falling apart melt in your mouth! I've done a few recipes here, check them out, in the side bar.
I remember my first crockpot, it was tiny, and could just fit 1 whole chicken it it standing up. As our family grew, I insisted on a much bigger one, enough to fit the meat and vegetables.

This is a recipe for pot roast I found some years ago from my favorite site and have used it since. It even makes it's own gravy! I usually use a 3-5 lb roast and these veggies listed. You can use whatever kind of vegetables you like and size roast to suit your family.

2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup -or make your own here
1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
3 C cups beef broth -enough to cover roast
3-5 pounds pot roast (I use Chuck roast)
potatoes, quartered
carrots, thickly sliced or quarter the whole carrot
onion -roughly chopped

In a slow cooker, mix cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and broth. Place pot roast in slow cooker, coat with soup mixture, add vegetables.
Cook on High setting for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low setting for 7 to 9 hours.

You could fit a whole chicken in your SMALL crock-pot? Ours is way too small for a chicken! I always have to do math on people's crock-pot recipes to make sure it'll fit in ours, heh.

Lol, I guess I always bought small chickens. I just remember having to kind of stand it on it's butt and there was enough room for the lid to go on.

Have you ever tried this with Golden Mushroom soup? It is just as good. I love roast. This looks delicious.

I couldn't live without my crockpot! I use it at least once a week, even more in the summer time so I don't have to turn on the oven in the heat. :)

I hate to admit this...

have crock pot.

shoved somewhere in the back of a cupboard.



if you have to watch your salt, instead of using dry onion soup, use dehydrated onions and just a pinch of salt.
