Crock Pot Roast Beef - The Southern Lady Cooks

There is nothing like a good roast with gravy, potatoes and carrots.  My children ask for this crockpot roast beef even on holidays. I make this roast beef 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.  All you need is to maybe add a green vegetable and some cornbread for a meal.  This crockpot roast beef will keep in the fridge for several days and is even better leftover.  This makes a wonderful pot roast to serve to guests and the gravy is delicious. I have made this recipe for years and it is one you will reach for time and again and the best comfort food ever!  I brown my roast in a skillet on top of the stove before adding to crockpot but this is not necessary.  You can just add it without the browning.

Crock pot roast beef ingredients needed:

Medium sized roast of your choice. (I usually use a chuck roast)




Mushroom soup

Dry onion soup mix



This crock pot roast beef has been a family favorite for many years and many of you love it too! Such wonderful recipe feed back on this delicious dish.

“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.” -Judy

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

“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!” – Susan
