Quick and easy in the crockpot. A juicy roast with potatoes, carrots and onions. I like to thicken the pan juices with cornstarch to make a tasty gravy to serve with this meal.
- Place roast into crockpot and surround with vegetables.
- Combine beef broth and vegetable soup mix, then add to crockpot.
- Cover and cook on LOW 6-8 hours or HIGH 3-4 hours.
The vegetable soup packet made this come out tasting sort of artificial (I even used Knorr).
This is incredibly good and so simple to prepare! I loved that the gravy was not too heavy or salty, yet very flavorful. I don't think I've ever enjoyed the taste of the potatoes in a pot roast recipe as I did with this one. I did dust the roast with flour, salt, and pepper and browned it before placing it in the slow cooker. I was afraid the gravy would get too runny, and the flour would help thicken it, but I'm not 100% sure if it was required. Highly recommend this - thanks for sharing!
LOVED THIS RECIPE!!! Made it last night, family couldn't get enough. I did not put the onion in it & I did add a bit of red wine. Thank you so much!
