Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by Kaccy G.

I found this on the all recipes site. This is a very easy recipe for a delicious pot roast. It makes its own gravy. It's designed especially for the working person who does not have time to cook all day, but it tastes like you did. You'll want the cut to be between 5 and 6 pounds.

This was delicious. I used Epi Curious advice and used the golden mushroom soup. I can't believe the difference in taste between the cream of mushroom and the golden soup. I had never used the golden mushroom soup and it was totally awesome. I also put the carrots and potatoes in when I put in the beef. I cooked it on low for about 8 hours. I added potatoes, onions and carrots when I added the beef roast.The potatoes, onions and carrots came out to a beautiful golden color and the meat was very tender. The vegetables were infused with the wonderful flavor of the gravy. Thanks for sharing.
