Crock Pot Roast w/ Gravy

potroast 015

I’ve tried making a couple pot roasts in my life. One of the recipes I tried, required searing the roast until it comes brown on both sides and cooking it in a dutch oven at low temp for a certain amount of time.  I was able to get that right once and the roast was so tender. After using that recipe a couple times the roast has never been tender since. I don’t get it!

Since this is a crock pot recipe, the meat becomes sooooooooo tender. This is another one of those recipes where  all you use is a can of condensed soup and a package of seasoning mix. The meat when it cooks in the crock pot makes the best gravy ever.

Just look at how tender this roast is. I’m never cooking my roasts in the oven again. Just a crock pot.

Crock Pot Roast w/ Gravy


  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 package Onion Soup Mix
  • 3 pound roast beef chuck roast


Step 1
In your slow cooker, mix the two cans of cream of mushroom soup and one envelop of dry onion soup mix. Season the chuck roast with salt (go easy since the soups have a lot of sodium in them already), pepper and garlic powder, and add to slow cooker.

Cook the pot roast on low for 9 - 10 hours, until the meat is tender and falling apart.
