Crock-Pot Beef Roast

"I've put together a few different recipes to come up with something our family likes. Hope you enjoy it too! *I usually cut my potatoes into eighths unless they are small potatoes. *Using the crockpot on a low setting makes the meat so much more tender. *I have a 6 quart crockpot, so I can fit a lot into it."

Ready In:
8hrs 20mins


  • 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 5 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch slices
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 2 -3 lbs boneless chuck roast
  • 12 cup water or 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 18 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (1 ounce) package onion soup mix
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup


  • Put potatoes, carrots and onion on bottom of crockpot.
  • Place the roast on top, fat side up.
  • Pour in water or beef broth.
  • Sprinkle chives, parsley, pepper and Onion Soup mix over the meat.
  • Pour Worcestershire sauce and mushroom soup over meat.
  • Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours.

Questions & Replies

  1. With a can of cream of mushroom soup do you still use a cup of water with the soup can directions. Or just the contents of the cream of mushroom soup.
  2. My crock pot beef roast id cooking right now on low. It's been cooking for about 4 hours. The cream of mushroom soup is staying on the top of the roast. Is that the way it is supposed to be or did I do something wrong? I didn't add any water to the condensed soup. Could that be a problem?
  3. On the slow cooker beef roast all the recipes I find are for 2 to 4 pounds but we were givgiven a 44 oz beef roast how do in cook it
  4. If the cream of mushroom soup doesnt sink in, do i just mix it with the rest of the juice at the end once I take everything out to make the gravy? My crock pot is smaller so everything is stacked more so than spread out
  5. What are the nutritional values for this recipe?


  1. Super easy and delicious. We cooked on low for about 5 hours, didn't have time for 8 hours but it turned out perfect. Meat was tender, vegetables just right. [Side note: I don't understand reviewers who say they changed this, or that, or added four ingredients. Hmm, then you're not rating THIS RECIPE; post your own. Just sayin'.]
  2. As a single male I must say that this simple recipe is delicious. Never fails to impress. My dates think I can actually cook. A+
  3. Best combination of seasoning & sauces with the broth, Worcester, & soup the flavor is great. Best roast recipe I've used.
  4. I only use Golden Mushroom. I gives your juices (gravy) a darker tone and is delicious.
  5. Awsome, quick meal throw all the ingredients in the slow cooker and walk away if you can for the smell is intoxicating. Nice touch with cream of mushroom.. I will be cooking this again. From my family of 5 thank you.. deeelish


  1. I did substitute red potatoes skin on. Otherwise was spot on.
  2. Great recipe! I have just a few time and hassle saving tweaks- I use a small bag of baby carrots and a small bag of tri colored creamer potatoes (no peeling or dicing required!) Also, I salt AND pepper the meat and add a couple of dashes of A1 for a boost of flavor.
  3. This recipe was amazing!! Very flavorful!! I substituted pork tenderloin instead of roast and used sweet potatoes instead of Russell potatoes and it was so so yummy. Cooked in slow cooker on high 4 hrs. Possibly could have been finished 3 1/2 hrs. My boyfriend loved it and we had leftovers twice. Will definitely do again.
  4. Used red potatoes
  5. I made this yesterday. I made it for 2 hrs in a pressure cooker with all the ingredients except for the potatoes and carrots which I added 30 minutes prior to finishing. DELICIOUS!!!!!!
