I LOVE easy recipes! Especially ones that involve a crockpot. I love that I can just put a few ingredients together and turn the crockpot on and not even give it another thought. Well, that is until you can smell the delicious aroma of what you have cooking. Then that's all you can think about and you're salivating constantly until your husband FINALLY comes home from work and you can sit down and enjoy the meal you've put so little time into making.
Today's recipe is one of those. So good and so easy!
Here's what you'll need:
3-5 lb. beef roast
1 C. water
1/2 pkg. dry onion soup mix
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1/2 C. sour cream (opt.)
2 tsp. beef bouillon
1/4 tsp. pepper
All of the broth left over from the crockpot
Place roast in crockpot. Mix water and onion soup mix and pour over the top of roast.
Water does not need to cover the roast. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. When roast is done, take out of crockpot and shred meat; set aside.
In a saucepan, combine cream of mushroom soup, sour cream (if desired), bouillon, pepper, and the leftover broth from the crockpot. Bring to a boil. Add shredded beef.
(Just a note, when I took these pictures I used more sour cream that I specified in this recipe, which I won't do again. Your gravy will look darker and be more delicious than this.)
Serve over egg noodles or potatoes.
So easy, so good. Enjoy a good meal without much work!
