Roast Beef and Gravy
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours
This is a man-pleaser: savory and delicious. I love to cook and will take on complicated recipes, but sometimes I appreciate the quick & easy option. This couldn't be simpler, and if you've got 8-10 hours to wait for dinner, it's worth it.
I think this would taste ok but, too many processed ingredients for me. Canned soup? Onion soup mix? Way too much sodium.
I have been using a similar method for 55 years. I started out using an electric skillet. My mother taught me. I agree with the ones that said season and flour the meat and brown first. It improves the flavor so much. We always sautéed the onions until limp but not browned. Put the roast in the crockpot then add the soup to the skillet too loosen the drippings and pour over the roast. I usually add carrots and diced potatoes about halfway through the cooking. Just make sure there is plenty of gravy and it doesn't get too thick. I usually have to thicken mine with a little cornstarch at the end. The long cooking must do something to the thickener in the soup. We have been using the Golden Mushroom Soup ever since it came out.

Good meal in rainy or cold weather. I sometimes add a splash of my favorite bbq saue to change up the flavor a bit.
This is a Mississippi Roast in disguise ... why does Taste need to use a CAN OF SOUP in every recipe?
I wish there wasn’t an ad in front of the ingredients so I could try this recipe. This isn’t the first time this has happened with the ad being in front of ingredients or directions.
Only my opinion, but if a recipe calls for any kind of condensed soup I pass on it. Too many recipes I have tried with condensed soup end up tasting the same. It may be quick, convenient and easy to do, but I would rather have full ingredients for a more flavorful end result.
I use beefy mushroom soup for mine, Liptons beefy onion soup for mine, been making it this way for years, I add carrots and potatoes, their great cooked all day !!!
I have made this recipe for over 20 years, but I use Campbell's Golden Cream of Mushroom soup. Adds a whole dimension to the gravy! My family doesn't like mushrooms, but they eat this and don't notice them!
