Three Ingredients Slow Cooker Roast


Three ingredients, two minutes to prepare, 8 hours in the slow cooker and you have a delicious, tender, moist roast waiting for you when you get home. Eat it right from the slow cooker or shred it and have shredded beef sandwiches. This roast was so tender that I shredded the entire roast with a fork. Then I mixed it in with the amazing gravy from the slow cooker. It is wonderful over mashed potatoes this way. My husband told me that was the best tasting gravy he has ever had. I don’t know how something this easy can taste this delicious!






Place the roast into the slow cooker.



Spread the creamed soup on top of the roast.



Sprinkle the dry soup mix evenly on top.

Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

    • Taste wise it really doesn’t matter I use what ever is the oldest in the freezer. But I’m telling you this pot roast fell apart it was so tender and I love the bone marrow!!!!

  1. Slow cooker roast has been on my do-to list. I knew about adding the onion soup mix, but I never heard of the mushroom soup. I will give them both a try!

    As always, thanks for the easy to follow directions!

  2. This looks delicious Diane – I really have to think about getting a slow cooker – I was only interested to do it for the slow-cooker pizza, but it’s been so long since I had a roast – I am salivating looking at it. 🙂

  3. Oh my God, this looks delicious! I’m going to make it this coming weekend, will have to shop first. And will make mashed potatoes too…or maybe smashed. 😋

  4. OMG! I don’t think you mentioned how good it smells while the slow cooker is doing its thing. Hope I can keep the lid in place for the remaining 5 hours and 42 minutes! Smells scrumptious!

  5. So tried, and fantastic. Someone in the grocery check-out, as I was buying the ingredients suggested this could also be the basis for Beef Stroganoff… with a little wine and some noodles. I’d do it. Had a helping on rice tonight. Can’t see why egg noodles wouldn’t be great too. 😊

  6. Three ingredients and two minutes prep is definitely my kind of cooking.

    When I cook in the RV I regularly use condensed soups as a “cheat” sauce to save messing about and they alwys work well.
