I have been making this for years. It is easy to put together and tastes yummy! Some times I throw veggies in the crock pot also for an all in one dinner.
- Rub roast with 1/4 cup flour.
- Put roast in crock pot.
- In a bowl, combine soup and gravy mixes and remaining flour.
- Stir in water until blended.
- Pour over roast.
- Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
- We like to serve this with mashed potatoes.
First let me say I do not like roast beef! But this was ok. I made it because my DH is a meat and potatoes man. He absolutely loved it! My DD did too. So, after 30 years of trying to make a roast they would eat, here it is! Thanks, for posting.
I made this recipe on 12/16/09 for mine and SO's dinner. I used the amout of flour called for, but changed how it was used. I took some of the flour and coated meat as the recipe instructed then sprinkled some seasoned salt and pepper over the meat, browned the meat in a bit of shortening before placing in the crockpot. And mixed the remaining flour with both mixes and water, poured over the meat and let the crockpot do it's thing :). After about 7 1/2 hours the roast was done,but the gravy wasn't as thick as we liked it. So, the juices were removed to a saucepan, added a bit of flour, and stirred over a low heat till the right thickness was reached.I served this with mashed potatoes and carrots. This will be made again. Thank you for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
This was so good. Makes a wonderful, rich, flavorful gravy that hardly tastes as though it came from a couple of packets. Next time I'll double it, especially seeing that I can't resist tasting during the required cooking time. (It could explain why my roast wasn't quite as tender as I would've liked.) But I also may have used a cheaper cut of beef. A definite keeper, though!
