    Deblet's Note:

    My crockpot is one of the hardest working tools in my kitchen. Since we're a busy household, I like to put meals on in the morning and have them ready when we get home at night. This roast is so simple, and really, really good. Hope you enjoy it!

      Absolutely the best pot roast I have ever made, and pot roast is my comfort food of choice so I've made a few! Normally I keep canned french onion soup on hand, but didn't have any this time. So, I sliced a small onion thinly and placed it in the crockpot. The seasoned roast went on top of them and a can of beef consomme and cream of chicken as the soups. Also threw in a whole bag of baby carrots and 4-5 medium potatoes, cut up. A to-die-for meal, IMHO. This is the only pot roast I will make from now on.

      This has great flavor! I rubbed my roast with the cajun seasoning and added about 1 tsp. to the soup mixture. The gravy was a bit thin so I thickened it with cornstarch. My DH loved it and my baby girl licked all of the gravy and mashed potatoes from her fingers (she's not much of a meat eater). Thanks for sharing!
