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.

I like a chuck roast for pot roast, but rump roast, bottom round, or a beef brisket can work as well.

What You'll Need

  • 1 boneless pot roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
  • 2 pounds small white potatoes, scrubbed*
  • 4 large carrots, cut in 3-inch sticks
  • 1 can of condensed golden mushroom soup
  • 1 can condensed beef broth
  • Garlic powder
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water, optional

How to Make It

  1. 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.
  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours, or on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours.
  3. Gravy (optional): If you want a gravy, pour the liquids into a fat separator or skim fat off the top. Put about 2 to 3 cups of the skimmed liquids in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and simmer, stirring, until thickened.

    Recipe Tips

    If you use larger red white potatoes, cut into 2- to 3-inch chunks.
