Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast Plus Extras

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"This simple pot roast makes its own gravy in the slow cooker. As a single parent to girls, I am always trying to get the food groups into my abbreviated meals. I threw in potatoes, carrots, yellow squash, and zucchini to add to the original base recipe. They love stew, so this leads them in that direction, but is still a roast. It was a hit. I hope you enjoy it!"

  1. Stir cream of mushroom soup, water, and dry onion soup mix together in a slow cooker. Set pot roast into the soup mixture and spoon liquid over the meat. Add potatoes, carrots, yellow squash, and zucchini.
  2. Cook on High until the beef is cooked through, 3 to 4 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). You can also cook on Low for 5 to 6 hours.

Any recipe that is based on canned cream soup should be relegated to the back of a soup can, not posted with a list of otherwise well-made scratch recipes.

I started using dry onion soup mix and cream of mushroom soup on pot roast, when I was first married, early 70's. It's a great combo. We like big chunks of carrot, onion, potato and celery, bu...

Wonderful. I added 2 large chopped sweet onions, one small can low salt tomato paste and used 2tsp chopped garlic. Mix the liquids and dry mix together, put the meat on top, spooned sauce ove...

I make something similar. Because I suffered from overkill on zucchini during the 10 year I lived in an Italian neighborhood, I do NOT include zucchini. And instead of combining all the liqui...
