It takes all day to cook, but only 3 or 4 minutes to prepare. Condensed French onion soup makes this pot roast quick to fix and the crockpot makes it a breeze to cook.


  • 3 to 4 pounds top round roast or lean chuck
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed French onion soup
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cold water
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Cut the roast into 4 to 6 large chunks. Place in the slow cooker. Add soup and mushrooms. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours, or until very tender. Or, cook on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.

If desired, make a flavorful gravy with the juices. Remove the beef and mushrooms to a platter or bowl with a slotted spoon; keep warm. Transfer juices to a saucepan. Skim excess fat, if desired. Simmer the juices for 5 minutes to reduce slightly.

Mix 2 tablespoons of flour with cold water to make a smooth mixture; stir into the juices. Continue cooking until thickened and bubbly. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed. Serve the gravy with the sliced or shredded beef and mushrooms.
Serves 4 to 6.

This is so easy to make and is sooo good. My sister-in-law made it for us one visit. I do add a large sliced onion and a little minced garlic. That is the Italian in me. You will really enjoy this with a salad and mashed potato. It makes its own gravy.
