Roast beef in the crock pot

As a working woman, I really, really enjoy my crock pot! I just love knowing that my dinner is cooking all day and I don't have to stress about it after work! Today I'm making roast beef, potatoes and gravy. This is a very quick and easy meal and it is very tasty too! First you put in a defrosted beef roast.
Then you add two cans of Cream of Mushroom soup. You can substitute with Cream of Chicken or Celery if you would like. Then you add a packet of instant onion soup mix and stir it in.
I peeled about 8 potatoes and quartered them. I actually made a mistake when I was making it this time, the potatoes really should be on the bottom!
A little salt and pepper is added. Actually, after I took these pictures I moved the potatoes to the bottom where they should be!
Just put the lid on and set it to low for 8 hours.
I came home from work and my house smelled delicious and dinner was ready! I simply cooked up some mixed vegetables and added them and it was dinner time! We had enough meat left over that we had shredded beef burritos for dinner the next night! Oh how I love my crock pot!!!

Do you know there are blogs dedicated to a daily recipe for crock pots...I used to have one bookmarked and lost it...it was crazy what some people are cooking in a crock pot.

well that looks so good , I love my crockpot too. I wonder if there is a way to do it with out the onion soup mix though. When we were kids my mom used it all the time and now of course , dont like the smell of it. When I come home from work and the crock pot has been working away , I always say Hi Honey I'm home , Dinners ready , how thought ful of you. Quirky I know . I hope you ate it with your new silverware too. Donna

This is our Sunday meal many days. I love having it cook while church is going on.
Mom always had roast on Sunday in a good old Dutch oven.Wow times have changed.

I love roasts in the crockpot! Ed loves mushrooms, so it's always a good fit. :o) Yummo to burritos with the leftovers...that's a great idea, Sharon!

Yes, those potatoes need to be on the bottom or they don't cook well. Sometimes I parboil them for 5 minutes before addin them. Looks delicious--I can't use that anymore cause most of those soups have gluten (some of the store brands use cornstarch instead of wheat, however)

Looks delicious

You are a woman after my own heart! I love my crock pot too. This recipe looks so yummy!

Sharon said...

Donna, I am sure you could omit the onion soup mix and just add dried onions or fresh onions and other spices to add a little more flavor. It's one of those "throw it all in" recipes!

Thanks for the link Heather! I'll check it out!

Hugs, Sharon

Hi Sharon, I am so curious, are Joseph, Samuel and Whitney your niece and nephews? My kids say they saw a post of yours that led them to believe you are related. They are friends of ours and maybe I'm mistaken. Just curious.Have a great weekend! ~Kathy

Sharon said...

Hi Kathy, yes they are related to me, they are my sister Kelli's kids! How do you know them?

colbycottage said...

Hi again, My kids are involved with all kinds of things with the boys and my son does child evangelism ministry with Whitney. They are an awesome family and I am so surprised at what a small world :)Kathy Oh and yes the store is an awesome old house on River Road that fell into our lap.

Oh my,that looks so good,Sharon.I'm going to have to make it now.I've also used cans of beef gravy instead of the canned soup and chicken gravy for chicken with the dried onion soup.I haven't tried alot of these recipes online,like making a cake and making mashed potatoes.I'm going to experiment with some of them.
