This recipe makes a rich creamy gravy and is so easy...It originally called for cream of mushroom but I didn't have any so substituted cream of chicken and it makes it so much richer. All my kids love it, which is a miracle in itself.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season roast with salt, pepper and garlic powder to your liking.
  2. Place in crock pot.
  3. In a bowl mix together the onion soup mix, cream of chicken soup and 2 soup cans of water.
  4. Pour mixture over roast.
  5. If the liquid does not cover roast, add a little more water (but just enough to cover roast).
  6. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  7. Before you are ready to eat Ladle gravy mixture into sauce pan.
  8. Mix 2 Tbsp of cornstarch with 1/4 cold water and mix into boiling gravy-- You can use it straight from the crock pot but my family likes a thicker gravy.

Followed the recipe exactly, but this was not anything I would make again. Gravy was very bland. Meat was very tender but the rest was not worth the effort. There are many recipes on this site that blow this one away. Sorry, it just isn't for me.

This was great! I think next time I will start with one soup can of water (or wine or a combo) instead of two so the sauce is easier to thicken up. Not a fan of onion soup mix so used Lipton Herb and Garlic mix instead.

Impressive. Easy to prepare and delicious. I served it over egg noodles.
