Erica's Delicious Slow Cooker Beef Roast


"I love to make this very easy roast. It makes it's own gravy and is oh, so tender and juicy! Best if served with mashed potatoes and green beans. Any cut of roast should work fine."

I made this twice exactly by recipe. While it is very good, it had an odd taste that a few in the family did not like. I omitted the garlic and changed the soup to cream of celery (added fresh m...

HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS NOT MENTIONED: If you're cooking this for 8+ hours with a 2lb chuck roast and adding potatoes, celery and carrots, I suggest adding 1C of beef broth or the whole can (2C). A...

I love this recipe and use it every time I make a roast. I use a shoulder roast and add potatoes. It's really good if you use Campbell's Roasted Garlic Cream of Mushroom soup. Adds a little ex...

This is one of my most favorite recipes! It is so very good and DH loves it. I add potatoes to mine and a can of beef broth. I saute the garlic in the oil used to brown the roast and then add...

I'm giving this a 5 even though it was a little bland. I was ecstatic when I found a Laura's Lean Beef roast at Target! It was only 2 pounds, so I searched for a recipe using a 2 pounder. Defini...

How can you rate a recipe when you change all of the original ingredients? I hate when people do that!
