FAVORITE POT ROAST RECIPE – MADE IN THE CROCK POTThis family favorite pot roast is super easy to throw together with only a few ingredients (chuck roast, cream of mushroom soup, onion soup, salt and pepper to taste). This roast recipe makes the tastiest gravy that’s full of flavor, perfect served over mashed potatoes – comfort food at its best! *You can make the soups from scratch*
*Not a fan of canned soups and packaged dry onion soup mixes? I share links below to easy recipes to make your own homemade condensed cream of mushroom soup and dry onion soup mix.
HOW TO MAKE THE POT ROAST IN THE CROCK POT
Lightly spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Place roast in crock pot and season with salt and pepper or your favorite seasonings. In a medium size bowl, mix soups (can and dried) and water and pour mixture evenly over roast. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours. Each crock pot cooks differently so you may need to adjust cooking times.
*Be sure to read tips about browning the roast and adding red wine – both are optional but add extra layers of flavor and make this awesome pot roast recipe even better!

Browning the roast before placing in the crock pot adds wonderful flavor. Also, if you had red wine, I highly recommend replacing 1/4 of cup of water with wine – it’s wonderful!
