Easy Crock Pot Pot Roast with Gravy

Easy Crock Pot Pot Roast with Gravy

My family loves this Easy Crock Pot Pot Roast, and it is so easy to make! The best part about this recipe is that it makes its own gravy. You can serve it over mashed potatoes without having to thicken it, or add anything. That’s my kind of slow cooker recipe. This is one first recipes I made for my husband when we were newlyweds, ten years and two kids ago! He’s still a big fan. 

All you need is a three pound chuck roast, two cans of cream of mushroom soup, one envelop of Lipton onion soup mix, and seasoning. Just like my Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers, this crock pot recipe requires no precooking. Though you can certainly sear it if you are so inclined. 

Easy Crock Pot Pot Roast with Gravy

In your slow cooker, mix the two cans of cream of mushroom soup and one envelop of dry onion soup mix. That’s it. Don’t add water, or beef broth or any other liquids as it will make your gravy too thin.

Season the chuck roast with salt (go easy since the soups have a lot of sodium in them already), pepper and garlic powder, and add to slow cooker.

Cook the pot roast on low for 9 – 10 hours, until the meat is tender and falling apart. The meat and gravy are unbelievably flavorful and tasty. So good over homemade mashed potatoes,  a perfect weeknight meal!

You can make this meal super quick by using the steam and mash potatoes from the freezer section. They are a nice shortcut, and you still have the yummy flavor of homemade.

  3. This looks amazing! I’m drooling over here! I love it over mashed potatoes.

  4. I probably shouldn’t be research roast recipes while I’m hungry. Your easy crock pot roast makes my mouth water.

  5. Looks super yummy! My family would love this!

  6. Can this be cooked on high, I wonder?

  7. what cut and type of meat is that, I’m in UK and am not sure what a chuck roast is?x

  8. Just came home to this and it was, well, flawless. Amazing with mashed potatoes and a glass of red wine. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Melissa. Killer!

  9. Can you add veggies (carrots, onion, potatos) to this while cooking it also?

  10. I used a packet of hidden valley ranch mix instead of the onion soup mix, I didnt have any onion soup mix. it turned out wonderful. Thanks for posting this.

  11. Can you use 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup?

  12. can anyone come up with something this yummy without the msg?

  13. Those mashed potatoes look heavenly. I think I’ll make this, but add carrots and onions. Love your website. :)

  14. I use this recipe but I sear the roast on all sides before putting it in the crackpot. I’ve tried it both ways and I think iits better seared. Just my opinion.

  15. just put this in the crock pot (:(:

  16. I love potatoes and carrots with my roast. When would I throw this in with this recipe? Or should I?

    • This recipe creates a gravy, so if you are ok with your potatoes and carrots in gravy then I say try it:0) We really like the gravy served over mashed potatoes.

  17. have you tried doing this as a freezer meal? Freeze it all together and then put it in the crock pot to cook? Looks SO yummy!

    This is very much the same recipe that I use for my pot roast. However, in place of the mushroom soup (which sounds fabulous) I used a couple of cans of diced tomatoes. The onion soup mix adds a great flavor. I have not used the crock pot for this…..but love the idea.

  19. This is another wonderful crockpot recipe. My family virtually survives on crockpot meals when I work. Do you have anymore you can share???

  20. If I wanted to use a bigger roast to serve more people, would you recommend using another can of soup?

  21. I made this tonight and it was amazing!!! thanks for sharing :)!!

  22. Can I use golden cream of mushroom soup??

  23. My bf made this today exactly as written, except we couldn’t find chuck roast (we used blade instead), and both the roast and gravy were soooo delicious! Mashed potatoes, carrots and corn on the side. It was the perfect supper :) We’ll definitely be making this again and again. Thank you for the recipe!!

  24. Just put it in my crock pot. I also prefer searing my roast. Can’t wait for my husband and kids to eat it.

  25. This was the best crockpot pot roast I have ever tasted! A new family favorite!

  26. Out of curiousity…do you recommend the bone-in chuck roast or boneless??
