Mom's Pot Roast

I've put this recipe on the blog before; it was included in a fall pot luck post. And I've found since then when I want to make this I have a hard time finding it on the blog because I forget it's with the pot luck! So this is to make it more convenient for me to find this recipe when I need something super easy to make. It's one of my mom's recipe. The first time I made it I emailed her for the recipe and this is what she told me:

"I don't really have a recipe. I get a chuck roast, potato, onion, carrots, can of cream of mushroom soup, and Lipton's powdered onion packet soup and dip mix.  I put about 1/3 of can of soup on the bottom of the crock pot, then add meat, and coarsely chopped veggies.  Mix the rest of the soup and 1/2 of one onion packet and pour over everything. Cook on medium for about 4-5 hrs. 

Use maybe 2-3 potatoes and 2 onions.  Most of the time I use a bag of small carrots and add about half way through.  You could use regular carrots and I would probably put those in at the same time as other veggies."

Everything is in the crockpot here. A small layer of cream of mushroom soup on the bottom (1/3 can) followed by the vegetables, the meat, and then the mixed soup and onion dip packet.
Since I put this on before I leave for work I cook the roast on low all day (6-8 hours).

Then once you come home from work take a fork and break up the roast into small pieces and then mix together with the veggies. Then I just serve it like this with a salad or some fruit.

  1. Well you know I love this! I am glad my recipe got in the blog twice. It is easy and I think it is good. I remember you and Jimmy used to get tired of it because I made it so much. So now I use more restraint!
