Crockpot Roast Beef & Gravy



I love a good pot roast dinner. I was making them in a crockpot while I was at work. But, I must have lost my touch. I like my roast to fall apart with I cut it with a fork. After so many attempts, I stopped trying. I then went to cooking it in my dutch oven pan. It's a great way to cook it, but not something I want to do after work. So, here is a new crockpot roast recipe:

Crockpot Roast & Gravy
4 to 6lb roast beef
1/2 pkg dry onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can water from soup
1 can coke (not diet)

Place meat in crockpot. Sprinkle with dry soup mix. Stir together Coke, water, and soup. Pour over roast. Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours. Gravy may be thin, but you make thicken it up.

This recipe turned out awesome and I'm so happy that I finally got out of my "roast rut".

Michelle I'm like you, if I had my choice I'd use my dutch oven to cook my roast - because you can get it to the point of actually being able to shred it with two forks. But attempting this after working all day - nobody would eat until 11:00 pm. This is a good crock pot recipe with the onion soup is a good second best. Thanks for sharing it. Smiles

Your crockpot recipe sounds good and really simple, too! That's what I love the most about crockpot recipes. They're so easy to make. You can simply assemble them in a crockpot, plug it in and forget all about it until dinner time, lol! For the mean time, you can attend to the other million things you need to do. Crockpot recipes are life saver on a really busy day like manic Mondays. :)
