No browning, no fussing, just put the roast in the crock pot in the morning, add a few cans of soup and vegetables, and you have a delicious meal in 8 to 10 hours.
Chuck roast for pot roast is good, but rump roast, bottom round, or a beef brisket can work as well.
1 (3- to 4-pound) boneless pot roast
2 pounds small white potatoes, scrubbed
4 large carrots, cut into 3-inch sticks
1 (10.5-ounce) can condensed golden mushroom soup
1 (10.5-ounce) can condensed beef broth
1 dash garlic powder
1 dash freshly ground black pepper
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Put the pot roast in a large slow cooker insert. Arrange the potatoes and carrots around the roast.
Combine the soups and pour over the roast. Sprinkle the roast lightly with garlic powder and freshly ground black pepper.
Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 6 hours.
How to Make a Gravy
If you want gravy to serve over the roast, pour the liquids in the slow cooker into a fat separator or skim the fat off the top. Put about 2 to 3 cups of the skimmed liquids in a saucepan and bring to a boil. In a small dish, combine 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of cold water, mixing it into a slurry. Stir the slurry into the boiling liquid. Lower the heat to a simmer and stir until thickened into a gravy.
- If you use larger red or white potatoes, cut them into two- to three-inch chunks.
