❤️WHY WE LOVE CROCK POT ROAST BEEF

My family has loved this dish for many years. The gravy that is made with the onion soup mix and mushroom soup makes this recipe. The potatoes are amazing and honestly I can never get enough. As kids Leigh and I would fight over the potatoes. The ingredients in this roast just makes this dish incredible and you will not be disappointed. Another reason why we love this dish is the most time-consuming part is peeling the potatoes!

🍴KEY INGREDIENTS

Chuck Roast – I used a 2.5lb roast for this recipe and it worked very well. You can always get a larger roast. This made plenty of gravy for this size roast.
Russet Potatoes – I used 6-7 medium sized potatoes. We love the potatoes so we add as many as will fit in the crock pot.
Onions – we love the addition on onion in this recipe.
Carrots – these are optional but we like them.
Cream of Mushroom Soup – this really makes this recipe.
Liption Onion Soup Mix – combined with the mushroom soup, this is a hit!

SWAPS

You can use a different condensed soup if you must, I have read where people have used cream of celery or cream of chicken.

🍽️HOW TO MAKE

This roast couldn’t be easier to make, the hardest part is peeling and chopping the potatoes and opening up the cans of soup. It’s really that simple, which is why we LOVE crock pot recipes.

Step 1
Peel and cut up your potatoes, and also do the same with carrots.

Step 2
Add roast, potatoes, carrots, and onions to pot.

Step 3
Combine onion soup mix and mushroom soup and pour over meat and vegetables.

Step 4
Cook seven hours on low heat or 4-5 hours on 5 or until vegetables and meat are tender. You want the meat to easily fall apart.

⭐TIP

All crock pots vary with how hot they get so cooking time is approximate. I sometimes start mine on low and then finish it on high if it’s taking too long. Also, some times the meat is tougher than other times, so you may need to cook a little longer and let it really sit in the gravy to become tender.

SERVE THIS WITH

This dish is wonderful with mashed potatoes and cranberry salad. There is something about that combination that is just delicious. We have served this dish many times for Thanksgiving, that is how much my family loves it!

❓FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you need to brown the roast before putting it in the crock pot?

No, you do not need to brown the roast before putting it in the crock pot.

Do I need to add more liquid to the crock pot?

If the roast is soaking up all of the liquid then yes, add in some water. If your meat is really lean you may need to do this.

STORING AND REHEATING

We just store this in an air tight container in the fridge and it will keep for a few days. We reheat on the stove or in the microwave.

SERVING SIZE

This is going to depend on the size of roast and how many potatoes you add but this is about 6 servings.
