In honor of Eric I made this for our Sunday dinner. I started with a frozen 3lb.+ chuck roast. In 8 hours on low I had a fall apart tender roast that I served over mashed potatoes as suggested. I was told that I could make this anytime!!
What an excellent pot roast! I made as directed with the only substitution being using one envelope of Knorr French Onion soup and 1 can of beef broth to replace the can of French Onion Soup. I added 3 TBS of flour to a bit of water and stirred into the crockpot about 30 minutes before serving to thicken the gravy. The gravy was wonderful! I served with mashed potatoes with a side vegetable. I will definitely use this recipe again!! Thanks so much, Kelbel!
Excellent!!! This smelled so good while cooking. I was leery about the soup combo but it produced an amazing gravy and I didn't find it to be salty at all. I served this over mashed potatoes and will be using the leftovers today for open-faced sandwiches. Next time I plan on adding carrots, potatoes, celery, and mushrooms.
I can't believe all of these canned soups ended up as a really good Pot Roast, a nice surprise. I had a really ugly Chuck Roast that I kept pushing back in the freezer and I used for this recipe.<br/>Ugly Chuck Roast, you were delicious.
Amazing! I was a little skeptical like most folks combining these three soups...but this gravy turned out soooooo good! Thank you so much for sharing! Fast, easy and freak'n delicious!
Absolutely delicious and so easy to make! The best pot roast I've made and I love that it is in a crock pot! We actually had someone comment of on the yummy smell coming out of our house when they knocked on our door instead of our neighbor's by accident. I will definitely move this recipe into our regular line up. Much more tasty than the top rated slow cooker pot roast on this forum.
UPDATE: Use the soups listed! My husband brought home beef consomme instead of french onion soup and the resulting taste was much less flavorful. We learned our lesson. Don't mess with what works!
Very easy to make. Had a lot of leftover gravy.
This was great...The hubby couldn't stop eating it!! A little salty, but what do you expect from canned soup? lol
Loved it! Makes a very good gravy!
We've made this several times and Love it! Have a crock pot going now and can't wait. Will serve with mashed and green beans with garlic.
I now use the same gravy when making shepards pie and it has Never failed me!! As a matter of fact, before this I was asked to never make shepards pie again because my last one was so terrible (and I hold my own in the kitchen). Now it's back on rotation. Thanks!!
