Slow Cooker Pot Roast

It seems like the simplest meals turn out to be some of the best meals. I threw this together in the crockpot, went to work and came home to a delicious dinner. So easy and tasted like I slaved the stove!

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

3 lb. pot roast
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can water
1 envelope onion soup mix
2 tsp worsteshire sauce
1 1/2 lbs red potato, quartered
5 carrots, peeled and cut into large chunks
2 sweet onions, cut into large chunks

Put vegetables on the bottom of the crockpot. Put meat on top. Mix soup, water, onion soup mix and worsteshire. Pour in crockpot. Cook on low for 10 hours or high for 6 hours.

To make gravy:
1 cup of juice from crockpot
1 tbsp cornstarch

In a saucepan, mix 1/4 cup of the juice with the cornstarch. Add remaining juice and cook over medium heat until thickened.

This is one of those perfect dishes for a cold, wet fall/winter evening. It only gets better when you don't have to bust your tail after work to get it done!
