There 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!

    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.

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

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

  4. 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!

  5. Jackie Gilles says:

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

  6. You could make this in the oven, too. Just look on about 350 until roast and potatoes are tender.

  7. This was delicious.

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

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

  10. 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!
