Slow-Cooker Roast and Gravy

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by Bev I Am

This recipe is from the January 2007 edition of Southern Living Magazine. Southern Living suggests not lifting the lid while cooking your roast. Heat is lost when the lid is opened, resulting in an additional 20-30 minutes of cooking time.

I've already made this twice since I found the recipe. Everyone loved it. It makes the best gravy ever. I used Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix and I used regular cream of mushroom soup so I added two cloves of garlic, split. I thickened the gravy in a saucepan with cornstarch. Love it!
