- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of celery soup
- 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
- 1 (14 ounce) can Italian tomatoes
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 bay leaves
- salt and pepper
- 1 (8 ounce) package egg noodles, cooked, drained and buttered
- Heat oil in a skillet and brown roast on all side; remove from pan.
- In the same skillet saute' carrots, onion and garlic for three minutes.
- Put veggies in crock pot and place roast on top.
- Combine remaining ingredients (except noodles) and pour over roast.

Great recipe. After cooking the roast, we took it out and sliced it quite thin with an electric knife and returned the slices to the gravy, rather than shredding. Some pieces still fell apart, but the intact slices were a bonus! I don't think I've ever had a dish like this, but it was great! Wonderful roast beef flavor! I was worried that the sauce would overwhelm the meat, but it was a good complement, instead. We had a lot of side dishes, so a 2.5 lb roast served 6 adults and 6 smallish children.
I thought this was just terrific. I used my "wand" blender to turn the veggies in the crockpot into a great sauce. With the addition of the shredded beef it made a great sauce for the linguini I served it over. Also had plenty of leftovers for another pasta dish or a unique "sloppy joe." Thanks Lusil
Super Great crockpot meal! So easy and great tasting! My fiance and I thought it was very good, but the kids found a mushroom from the cream of mushroom soup. Next time I'm planning to make it during the week, when his kids aren't with us and putting a can of mushrooms in the gravy!!!!(because him and I loooove mushrooms!!)
