Very easy pot roast. The first time I made it I was thrilled to see my family go back for seconds.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs chuck roast
  • 4 medium carrots or 1 lb baby carrots, sliced
  • 4 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced thin (optional)
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 3 cups water (I use a little flour to make gravy thicker)


  1. Put roast, potatoes, carrots, and celery in slow cooker.
  2. Add onion soup mix and water.
  3. Cover.
  4. Cook on LOW 6-8 hours.

I used a 3.5lb tip roast, substitued yellow onions cut into wedges, left out the celery. Put the potatos on the bottom, roast over the taters and onions on top. Rubbed the onion soup mix all over the roast before placing in the pot. Very good. My stepdaughter REQUESTED leftovers of this the following evening. That's a first in this house. Thanks!!

Very good roast. I used a two and a half pound eye of round roast, added a little salt and pepper and the flour to thicken the gravy. Cooking time was 9 hours in my crockpot. Can't wait for a sandwich from the left overs.

Incredible! You made a pot roast lover out of my husband! He is actually looking forward to sandwiches tomorrow with the leftovers! Previously, I've only found one recipe that he'll eat and it's on the stove, so to have one that i can throw in the crockpot is a blessing! He rated it 4 stars. Thank you!
