This is a delicious, fairly simple, belly filling dinner!! It's a hybrid of a few different recipes I have tried. I think you will really enjoy this one.

- 1 (18 1/2 ounce) can French onion soup

- 1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce (I recommend Sriracha)
- 3 beef bouillon cubes
- 5 large potatoes
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic clove
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- Place roast into crock pot and set on high, salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour can of French Onion soup over roast.
- Add Worcestershire, red wine vinegar and hot sauce.
- Sprinkle packet of onion soup mix on top.
- Add bouillon cubes into liquid.
- Cook for 4-5 hours on high.
- Once beef is cooked through, remove roast, cut into chunks and add back into sauce.
- Boil potatoes until softened.
- Mash (with a masher, mixer or ricer) and add garlic, cream cheese and milk to create desired texture.
- Top potatoes with beef and drizzle with sauce from the pot.
Ohhhh soooo wonderful and the smell! I followed the instructions only I did add a little of the Sriracha and a few portabellos midway and all I and DH can say is ohhhhhh. This was definately a keeper and going into my favorites of 2011. Thank you! Made for Spring Pick a Chef Orphanage 2011.
Oh My! 10 stars from us! Total comfort food on a day that's been windy and stormy. We spent most of the day car shopping for our teen and coming home to the smell of this recipe in the crock pot was Heaven! The only thing I had to alter was the meat, as I couldn't find the right cut at the grocery store so I settled on strip steaks. They basically shredded themselves! Thanks for sharing your creation, LCurt; we'll be making it again. Made & enjoyed for Spring 2011 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
This was great! I used the Sriracha as you suggested and we could tell it was in there lol. I thickened the sauce and added the meat back into it. DH thought nice thick portabella slices would be good added midway through cooking. I subbed sour cream for the cream cheese in the potatoes but the real star was the meat and gravy. Super easy and delicious. Thank you for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
