Ingredients

  • 1 3 to 4 pound boneless roast (rump, chuck, or other pot roast cut, trimmed)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 4 to 6 medium potatoes (peeled and diced)
  • 4 carrots (cut into 1-inch chunks, or use 1 1/2 to 2 cups baby carrots)
  • 1 large onion (cut into large chunks)
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk

Steps to Make It

Place roast in bottom of crock pot; sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add potatoes, carrots, and onions. Pour both cans of soup over onion layer. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours. Combine sour cream and milk; stir into the juices and continue cooking for 20 minutes, until heated through.

If the juices need to be thickened a little more, blend some flour with a little water to make a smooth, thick mixture. Transfer juices to a saucepan. Slowly stir some into the simmering or boiling liquid until thickened as you like it.
