Great recipe for the "SLOW COOKER" in the summer, so you don't heat up your kitchen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place water and three-fourths of the vegetables in the slow cooker.
  2. Reserve 1 tablespoon onion soup mix. Sprinkle remaining onion soup mix over vegetables; stir gently to coat evenly.
  3. Sprinkle and rub salt, pepper, thyme over the pot roast. Place pot roast on top of vegetables.
  4. Place remaining vegetables around pot roast; sprinkle vegetables with remaining onion soup mix. Place lid on slow cooker.
  5. Cook on low for 8 to 9 hours OR on high for 5 to 6 hours until beef is tender.
  6. Carefully remove lid to allow steam to escape. Serve food directly from slow cooker.

Really good roast. Well seasoned. I recommend waiting to put the potatoes in until the last 2-3 hours to prevent them from getting too soggy.

Another great crockpot recipe. The only change I made was to add some beef boullion to the recipe. I then thickened the gravy with a combination of water and cornstarch.
