Slow Cooker Yummiest Pot Roast

  • Cooking Time:

    6-8 hours
  • Servings:

    10

Ingredients

2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 oz. package dry onion soup mix
1 1/4 c. beef broth
2 - 4 oz. cans mushrooms
flour
olive oil
salt, pepper & garlic powder to taste
4-5 lb. round roast / pot roast

Once you fix the Yum­mi­est Pot Roast your fam­i­ly is going to love you! It is by far the best Roast I have ever made, you will see what I mean when you make this too!

  1. Heat olive oil in skil­let.
  2. Rub roast with salt, pep­per, and gar­lic pow­der to sea­son.
  3. Next, rub roast with flour — this will help thick­en the gravy in the crock pot as it cooks.
  4. Brown the roast on all sides in the heat­ed skil­let.
  5. While roast is brown­ing place the remain­ing ingre­di­ents in the slow cook­er.
  6. Trans­fer browned roast to the crock pot and spoon sauce on top of meat.
  7. Cov­er.  Cook on Low for 4 hours then increase time to HIGH for 2–3 hours or until meat is ten­der.
  8. Serve with mashed pota­toes or your favorite veg­eta­bles.

Note: If you would like to add veg­eta­bles to your roast wait until the last 3 hours of cook­ing. Some good options are car­rots, pota­toes, onions, or fresh green­beans.  Yum­my!!!

can you skip the brown­ing of the roast step?

The brown­ing step seals in the fla­vor and pre­vents the roast from becom­ing ‘chewie’. If you skip it, the roast will taste more like a boiled roast and Julia will turn over in her grave.

Just got this start­ed. I had to change a few things just because I didn’t want to run to the store. I used fresh mush­room and cream of cel­ery instead of cream of Mush­room. I hope it still turns out. This will be the first time I’ve browned the roast ahead

I always brown my roast before I put them in the crock pot. You are right, it does seal in the fla­vor and take that “boiled taste” out! This sounds like a great recipe, can’t wait to try it out!

Due to aller­gies, we are going to switch the cream of mush­room and do cream of onion. And no pep­per (aller­gies again). Will let ya know how it turned out!

I just made a roast sim­i­lar to this last night and it came out a lit­tle dry and chewy. 🙁 Any reme­dies to this? My first pot roast and I thought the crock pot was fool proof. Was embar­rassed when I served it to my friend. I trust­ed the meat guy at the store. Any­thing I should be look­ing for in meat selec­tion?

I am mak­ing this tonight! My pot roasts always came out dry in pre­vi­ous attempts to make them. I usu­al­ly boiled them on top of the stove or baked them in the oven, using brown gravy and a lit­tle water and spices. Ive seen sev­er­al recipes that used cream of mush­room soup and i thought “eww” (i don’t like mush­rooms) but decid­ed why not give your recipe a try. I hope it becomes the “yum­mi­est pot roast” i have ever made 🙂

I have 2 ques­tion about this recipe! Can you cook it on low the entire time but increase the time to 8–10 hrs, or do you have to turn it on high after the 4 hours on low ?? And,when I brown the roast, how long should I keep it in the skil­let?? (I’ve nev­er browned some­thing before putting it in the crock­pot, BUT I think it’s a fan­tas­tic idea) Thank you in advance for your time and I am real­ly look­ing for­ward to cook­ing this for my boyfriend this SATURDAY..YUMMO!!

I’m just about to make this for sup­per tonight but I don’t have any broth on hand 🙁 Can I use water instead?

This was fan­tas­tic I made yesterday…I used a 2 lb roast, 2 cans of broth, 2 cans of soup, 2 cans of mush­rooms and did use the whole pack­et of soup. Cooked on high for 6 hours. Thick­ened it up a bit at the end with cornstarch/water. Think it was b/c my roast was small­er tahn called for & I still used full amounts on the soup & prob­a­bly more broth than called for. GREAT recipe and I will make again! Great gravy too!

I have made this twice now, it is indeed the yum­mi­est pot roast I have ever made. The gravy it makes is fan­tas­tic and pairs per­fect with a heap­ing spoon­ful of gar­lic mashed pota­toes. The meat just falls apart. This is a new fam­i­ly and friends favorite. I did it exact­ly as the recipe spec­i­fied.

I real­ly want to try this but my kids real­ly like some pota­toes and car­rots with their roast. What do you think about adding peeled/diced veg­gies?

Fan­tas­tic pot roast and very easy to make. I used fresh mush­rooms and a 2.5 lb roast and fol­lowed the recipe exact­ly. Thank you for the great recipe!

Can you use 1 can of cream of mush­room soup instead of 2? My roast is 3 lbs.…

Hel­lo I am cur­rent­ly mak­ing this roast I didn’t add the dry onion will it still be good? Could I use some­thing else? Did­nt want to run to the store.

I added a cup of red wine and used a bot­tom round roast. It was the most deli­cious roast I’ve ever made with this recipe! Served to com­pa­ny and they loved it!

I have a dumb ques­tion in regards to what type of roast to buy. Is it a pork roast or a beef roast? I have nev­er done this before and when I went to the store I was clue­less. Any guid­ance would be great! Thank you!

I’ve been mak­ing post roast for years and also found out how impor­tant it is to brown your roast real­ly good before the crock pot stage. I also like to use Lipton’s onion soup mix instead of the mush­room soup. I just like the hearty taste of mix espe­cial­ly good if you have no broth on hand. It also makes real­ly good gravy because all you need to do is thick­en it with a lit­tle corn starch.

I have always browned my roasts before cook­ing in the crock­pot. The whole idea of the brown­ing is that you are sear­ing it and lock­ing in the fla­vor and juices.

I have celi­ac dis­ease and can not have gluten. Can I use corn starch on my roast before brown­ing? Or skip the flour/cornstarch rub all togeth­er and brown the meat with­out it?

For you use a small­er roast beef do you need to adjust the cook­ing time?
