Crockpot Roast Beef

One of those staples for winter-time cooking is my crockpot roast beef with it's fall-off-the-bone meat, tender potatoes and carrots, and it's own saucy gravy.  Mmmm...perfect for a cold winter day.


I put this recipe together after trying MANY different versions of this classic dish.  And what can be better than putting everything together in the crockpot in the morning and not even think about it until it's dinner time?  Nothing, I say.  However, it's pretty hard to ignore the delicious aroma that will spread throughout your house.

So, make this soon, before winter leaves us, and enjoy this hearty, warm-your-whole-body dinner.

Here's what you'll need:

3-4 lbs. beef roast OR round steaks 
(I used round steaks since we have a lot of them and this is one of the best ways to make this cut of meat so tender to eat.)
Your favorite dry rub 
(I just used a generic roast beef rub I had in my pantry; if you don't have one, you can use a combination of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, and anything else that sounds good to you.)
Mini carrots
(I like using my older carrots that are drying out in this dish because they'll moisten right up while cooking.)
Diced potatoes
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
2 cans cream of mushroom soup

Cover meat generously with the dry rub and place in crockpot.  Top with carrots and potatoes (however many you'd like).  

Shake dry soup mix over veggies.  

Spoon cream of mushroom soup over everything.  

Cook on Low for 6-8 hours or on High for 3-4 hours.

 Later that evening, you'll have this to eat...

So tender and delicious!  Enjoy!!

This is the only crock pot recipe that actually came out good and not smokey or thin juices.

Do you add any water in the bottom at all?
