"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."
Serving Size: 1 (417 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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!"
"The roast turned our tender and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly. It was very flavorful and the broth made wonderful gravy."
"So easy and delicious! I used a 1.7ish lb tri-tip (biggest one the store had at that time). Cooked it on low for 7 hours, which was plenty of time. I ended up only using about 2 russet potatoes, because 4 produced too much. If you like your veggies to be a bit firmer, I'd all them later or reduce the cooking time - mine turned out VERY soft, which I like, so it was OK but I can see some people finding them too mushy. I also seasoned with salt and pepper at the end. So simple and amazing! Will definitely make again."
"Soooo good. I did add two peeled cloves of garlic, and used whole small red potatoes, but did everything else as directed. The au jus was readily soaked up by the "smashed" potatoes and it was a hit. Thanks for the recipe!"
"My family and I loved this. I did not use the vegetable soup packet or the flour. I used 2 cups of beef broth instead of 1 1/2. I am making it again tomorrow."
"This was delicious! I did tweak it a bit by browning the roast first after seasoning with salt and pepper prior to putting into the crockpot, I also added thyme and rosemary. I did add one more package of vegetable dry soup mix just to add more flavor. I also wanted a thicker sauce so I did thicken with cornstarch powder and it came out perfect! Will definitely try this again! Thank you for this recipe!"
"WOW !!! It was easy. followed the recipe exactly. Followed the instructions, and ingredients exactly, went out shopping, came back and had this wonderful dinner with the family. The taste was FABULOUS. Thanks. A keeper."
"Easiest and tastiest roast I've had in a long time! I just left it "au jus" and it was terrific! Definitely a keeper; thanks loads, Tasha"
"Now THAT'S what I call a Pot Roast!! Yummy and super easy. Just throw it all in and forget it. Worked great to put in before work, leave on low all day and voila! Dinner! I wouldn't change a thing, it's great!"
"This was a huge success, it was by far the best pot roast that I have eaten and my husband said it was even better than his Mom's!!! Yeah for me! Thank you for posting such a yummy easy recipe I made it just as directed."
"This was very simple to prepare and had a nice flavor. I used red cooking wine for part of the liquid. Thank you for sharing."
"This was really good. Very versatile, you can add pretty much whatever you have on hand and it will still come out tasty. Thanks for posting!!"
"Delicious! I used an onion soup mix because that's what I had and it still turned out wonderful. Leftovers for lunch at work were a total plus. I prep'd everything Sunday night, cut the potatoes and then Monday morning I tossed it in and turned it on. I didn't combine any of the ingredients the night before. Just prep'd everything. Will definitely make again. Makes me want to make stew next!!"
"What a great way to have pot roast.I love being able to throw it all in together and have it come out delicious!I made a few changes because of what I had on hand.I didn't have vegetable soup mix so I used onion soup mix and onion soup broth instead of the beef broth.I omitted the onions since I used the onion soup mixes instead.It was great,not too oniony as some might think it to be.I cooked this all on low for 7 1/2 hours.The roast and the vegetables were perfectly tender."
"With some modifications astounding!"
"Turned out great! Thanks for sharing!"
"WOW, what a wonderful recipe. I have made it twice. The first time, just as it published. Wonderful! The second time I used a half of cup of burgundy and only one cup of beef broth and I added a small package of fresh mushrooms and a large sweet potato, cut into 2" slices. My family has asked me to make either one again and again."
"So easy to make!!! I cut up the veggies the night before and let them sit in the stoneware overnight in water w/ "Jane's Crazy Salt" . Drained it in the morning, dumped it in the crock w/ the rest of the stuff, turned it on, and went to work. Came home to a meal even my mom and my 3 year old really loved! And the house smelled wonderful. This will become a regular in our house :) Thanks for the easy meal!"
