Crockpot Roast BeefThere is nothing like a good roast with gravy, potatoes and carrots.  This is a favorite dish at my house. My children ask for it even on holidays. I make this roast in a 3 quart crockpot. You can use a bigger one if you like, just increase the amount of beef and veggies to suit your needs.

1 medium sized roast of your choice. (I usually use a chuck roast)
6 or 7 potatoes, peeled and cut up
5 or 6 carrots, sliced
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
2 cans cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
2 packages dry onion soup mix
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Add roast, potatoes, carrots, and onions to pot. Mix dry onion soup with cream of mushroom soup, salt and pepper and pour over the meat and vegetables.

Cook seven hours on low heat or until vegetables and meat are tender.
This makes a wonderful pot roast to serve to guests and the gravy is delicious.  ENJOY!

  1. I have this in my crockpot as we speak. I browned a rump roast first, and lightly sautéed my onions in the drippings. I put a splash of water in the pan, scraping up all that Browne goodness, and added the pan juices to the mushroom and onion soup. I have been off my feet for 15 weeks following a triple broken ankle and surgery. Lots of potluck dinners and takeout have gotten us through. Now that part of my pt is standing, I put this dinner together for a comforting home cooked meal. Yum!

    • My best wishes to you on your recovery Janet. I have 10 screws and a plate in my left foot from a really bad break and surgery back in the 90s. I hope your recovery will be as good as mine and you will have many years ahead with an ankle that is good as new. I was on crutches for 6 months but eventually was able to go back to running and even did a few races. Mine was just a freak accident where I fell and my foot was almost turned around to the side. A compound fracture. I am so happy to have you on my site and hope you enjoy the roast beef and all the recipes. My prayers for your continued well being and healing. Hugs to you and yours, Judy

  2. Do I need to put any liquid in this? I was always told that one must have enough liquid to cover the meat.

  3. I made this today. Went exactly by recipe. It turned out wonderful and was soo delicious and was NOT hard to do.. throw it all in pot and turn on. Just make sure your crock pot is large enough. Mine became too full and I had to take some out.. Roast was tender and I loved the gravy it makes.

  4. I know this is delicous, thank you for sharing.

  5. I made this yesterday – I cooked it for 5 hours on high and it was ready when we got home from church. Sooo good!

  6. Finally ~ a WINNER of a beef stew for crock pots. Thank you, Judy. This is absolutely delicious! I did only use one packet of onion soup mix as I was using a small roast (but tons of veggies), and I omitted the salt. Definitely a keeper!

  7. I make this with Golden Mushroom soup then after its done I add a little brown gravy mix to thicken up the sauce

  8. Would love to try this but I don’t have a slow cooker.

  9. Love Pot Roast but I would never use Cream of Mushroom soup. What can I use instead? Cream of Celery maybe????

  10. This was delicious.

  11. Oh YUM, this sparked a meal in the making for tomorrow, thanks Judy.

  12. Wow, that looks tender. I don’t own a crockpot, but it makes me want to make stew.

  13. Oh Judy – I knew you were a woman after my heart! This is MY favorite meal also – hands down! Your photo looks soo delicious. Simple recipe too – MMMM!
