Very good and easy. But why oh why does someone change the recipe leaving out the soup and then give it a low rating.

I make this recipe without mushroom soup at all and it is less fattening. Use beef broth instead of mushroom soup or just water.

This is the best pot roast I have ever had. I did add only 1 can of soup and also 1 can of water to lighten it up. I am thrilled at how easy and fantastic it was!

Delicious and healthy with the vegetables added. I wanted to comment that Cream of Mushroom Soup is not that fattening in the overall ratio of the recipe ingredients, (do the math) especially if Campbell's Healthy version is used.

Followed to a T, was delish, however food for thought, cut the red potatoes, they took the longest to cook. Simple and easy and tasted just wonderful.

made this recipe today and it turned out great! i put everything in the crock pot- potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, green beans, meat and the cream of mushroom soup. let it cook on low for 10 hours and YUM!

great recipe, added some seasoning to my preference minced garlic, pepper and tumeric. Added some whole mushrooms which tasted delicious

I love having all the vegetables in the same pot as the roast! I need to remember to salt the individual veggies next time. I cooked the roast on high for 4 hours, using Campbell's Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup and the diced onions. Then I added the rest of the veggies. I did cut the small red potatoes in half and just cut strips of carrots rather than slicing them. The mixture cooked another 5 hours, making a total of 9 hours on high. Delicious and easy!
