Crock Pot Can-It-Really-Be-So-Easy Roast Beef

READY IN: 5hrs 10mins
Recipe by Amy020

The best and easiest roast beef I've ever had. Makes its own delicious gravy. Soooo tender and tasty. This is the only recipe I've seen use these foil instructions, but it works! Recipe is from "Fix-It and Forget-It Slow Cooker Magic." Ideal for 4 or 5 qt. crock pot.

This produces a wonderfully flavored, tender, fall apart roast. I didn't wrap in foil, though, just put it all in the crock. I also used 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. I have been making this for years and we love it! In fact I wanted the leftovers the next day, and unfortunately someone already beat me to them!
