I could not tell you how many times I have prepared a roast this way. I learned it from a roommate in college, and have used it ever since. Everyone loves it and I rarely fix it any other way. So easy, so delish. This is my favorite roast beef dish. It’s actually cooking in my CrockPot, as we speak.
3-4 lb. chuck roast (cheaper cuts are fine, because the slow cooker tenderizes everything)
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
1 10-oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup (Golden Mushroom is great, as well)
1. Place roast in slow cooker.
2. Sprinkle onion soup mix over roast.
3. Spread condensed soup over top of roast.
4. Cook on HIGH 4-6 hours (you can cook this on low; just make the time adjustment. I usually only have time to cook on HIGH!)
