Holy lord this was the best thing I've ever tasted!!! I cannot wait to have the leftovers! I had my in-laws over for lunch and I believe that with this recipe I have convinced my MIL to get a crock pot. The gravy...ohhh the gravy was to die for! I will be making this one over and over and over....THANK YOU SO MUCH Bob Henry!!

Very easy and very yummy! I live for ease of preparation and cooking and this sure fit the bill. My crockpot is one of those quick cook ones, so I cooked my roast for 4 1/2 hours on low. I also added 1 1/2 cups of water to ensure moistness and it worked out great! My hubby normally dreads my roasts but he really liked this one and gave me his blessing to make it again.

I've been making my pot roast like this for years and it always turns out great. We love the tenderness of the roast from the slow cooker and love the gravy over mashed potatoes.

I have been making this for a few years now. It is a great life saver when you forget to take out the roast. It can also be cooked in the oven just simply wrap it up in tin foil and cook.

I've made very similar to this for years. Makes a great dish to take to a sickly friend - all in one. I always use a chuck roast. I also add 2 T A-1 sauce and cut potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and a can of drained green beans. If the soup mixture is too thick for you, add some of the water from the beans. Sometimes I'll add a glug glug of red wine. Buy a bigger roast (or 2), double the ingredients and do in a large roaster in your oven at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 - 3 hours. That way you have dinner for you and your friend.

I've been making pot roast for close to 30 years....I've tried all different methods, all different ways. I can't believe that this simple, easy crock pot roast was so good. It took me way less than 5 minutes to get it going, I used Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup and just half a packet of the onion soup mix (I was afraid of the sodium, so just used half). Also, I tossed in half a box (about 1/4 lb.) sliced baby portobello mushrooms that needed to be used up. I let it cook in the crock pot for 9 hours and thought I'd have to thicken it for gravy, but, no, the gravy was perfect. I served it with mashed potatoes and baby green beans. Perfect meal! I made stew out of the leftovers, adding some chunked up boiled potatoes and it was still excellent. This is how I'm doing pot roast from now on. Thanks PMP!

This came out very good...i added a packet of McCormick pot roast seasoning, a can of diced potatoes, and half a bag of frozen stir fry pepper and onion strips...The gravy was delicious and flavorful and the aroma was awesome:) We ate it for 3 days;)
