Easiest and Tastiest Pot Roast Ever!

As you all know, I’ve had some health problems over the last few months, so when I’ve hunted for recipes, it’s mostly been for old classics, that survive the test of time because they’re just that good. I’ll be honest – I didn’t have high expectations when I first saw it – but after having the combination of tender pot roast, root veggies, cream of mushroom soup and onion soup mix, I was blown away. It all converts over time to an awesome roast with a nice creamy gravy. This recipe goes in the keeper pile and is added to the regular rotation. After having New England Pot Roast like this, I’ll never cook it any other way.

Recipe note: It calls for a top round roast, which we used the first time we made it. The second time, we used a chuck roast, but the final result was far too fatty to recommend. Stick with the top round or another similarly lean cut of beef.

  1. What a coincidence! I made this same recipe just a month ago. I was also blown away by how easy and delicious it was. The only difference was mine was cooked in a slow cooker for about 8 hours.

  2. In what pot did you cook this recipe? I have a pretty big slow cooker and decided to go that route since I have to go to work today, but when I put a 4 lb roast and the soup/water in (no veggies), the slow cooker is filled to the rim. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  3. I used a 5 qt enameled cast iron pot, and made it in the oven. I would say that if you're doing it in a slow cooker, you'd need a 5-6 qt.
