Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast Plus Extras

The Boss Of Sauce (TBOS)

"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.

I've been making this since 1979. My recipe calls for everything yours does except I use a whole small bottle of A1 steak sauce. This recipe makes its own gravy. I make mash potatoes and use th...

I have two changes: I use Lipton Beefy Onion soup mix and I strain the dried onions out of it, then chop my own fresh onions in place of the dried onions.

The only change I made was adding the yellow and green zucchini after roast had been in crock pot for 2 hrs.--this made the zucchini more firm. My son is a big eater and loves left-overs so t...

This was a great starter pot roast. Folks who make it and don't like it should try modifying it with a bit of hot sauce, minced garlic, and just a little curry. I usually do not measure the thin...

This is a great recipe. I was out of cream of mushroom soup so I used golden mushroom. Nothing left after Sunday Dinner!
