Wanda's Tender and Easy Roast

READY IN: 24hrs 5mins
Recipe by Lisa in Acworth

Got this recipe from a slow cooker e-newsletter I subscribe to. Wanda, I was skeptical but after trying this recipe , it made a delicious and EASY roast with no preplanning necessary!!! Is it easier than to throw a frozen roast into a crockpot the night before you need it? I don't think so! Fabulous gravy too with a VERY tender roast.

I got the roast ready the night before and just dumped everything in the crockpot before going out the door. My roast was not frozen so I cooked mine an hour on high and four hours on low and it was perfect. Made for some tasty sandwiches. I didn't add the potatoes to mine because I knew we were going to be making sandwiches with the roast and I didn't want potatoes too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. On the night before you need the roast for the next day's dinner, put the FROZEN roast into the slow cooker on LOW temperature.
  2. Mix the cream of mushroom sup and dried onion soup mix together and pour it over the roast. Leave it on all night and the next day.
  3. The next day, about 1-2 hours before dinner, add the drained potatoes in (and/or any other veggies you'd like) and make sure they are submerged in the gravy.
