This turned out really well for a tiny amount of work. I used regular carrots that I cut up (to use them up) but I can definitely see the attraction of opening 3 cans/packages rather than chopping and measuring. Although I don't typically use the soups in cooking I would probably make this again. I used an 7X11 dish but the gravy started to overflow so I think 9X13 would be better. I thought I should have made noodles because there is a lot of gravy, but I got an alternative request for a larger roast and more carrots and potatoes in the same amount of gravy.

I used my slow cooker for this recipe. It makes a very good roast. My husband was a bit skeptical when he saw the soups that I put in, but he was won over after he tasted it. He hates leftovers, but we ate what was left a few nights later and he even said that is was still good. I think that the soups help to keep the roast from drying out. Thanks! I will make this again.
