This is one of my favorite recipes in the Crockpot. My Mom use to make it all the time. It is SO easy and so yummy. It smells up the whole house and makes me look forward to it all day.
Take one pot roast (it was on sale this week!) Place it in the crockpot with one package of onion soup and a can of cream of mushroom soup. If this is all you have- it is perfect with just these two ingredients. But to make it a little bit more fresh, I always add one fresh chopped onion, a fresh package of mushrooms and 5 or 6 cloves of garlic. Set the crockpot to low and let cook for 6-8 hours.
Once the roast is finished, pull it out to set. Add 1 tbsp of flour with a whisk to the gravy left in the pot. This makes the perfect gravy. We usually serve with mashed potatoes and something green.
