    Very good. I used a tbl spoon of Olive Oil in a skillet and browned the outside of the roast with parsley, garlic, & pepper before putting it in the crock pot. I added Potatoes, Onion, and carrots as well. Even better the second day when re-heated. - 10/23/08

    I put some peeled white potatoes on the bottom of the crockpot and mixed the soup mix with a bit of water to pour over everything, then spread the canned soup over the meat. Carrots would also be good in this dish. Delicious with a side of mixed veggies! - 1/17/08

    I made this 2 nights ago and it was awesome!!! It was the first time making pot roast and couldn't believe it was this easy. I also added chopped potatoes, carrots, and onions and cooked on low for like 9 hours.

    It was delicious served with rice! Thanks! - 1/8/10

    I absolutely loved this recipe! My whole family said it was the best pot roast that they had ever tasted. I didn't even brown the meat prior to cooking like I normally would have. Could not have been easier! - 8/24/11

    I used a 3lb bottom round roast, a can of 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup, a can of beef broth and a can of water. Didn't have onion soup mix so I used onion powder. Also added potatoes and carrots. EXCELLENT!! Will definitely make this again and again! - 3/30/10

    You could also use Golden mushroom soup in this recipe my family has done this for years. It is the easiest possible way to do a roast we LOVE it..... - 1/24/08

  • I been doing this for years - it's the only way I ever do pot roast BUT I add 1 cup Tawny Port wine with soups and add baby carrots and sliced fresh mushrooms for the last hour on high - talk about flavor! Usually serve over Healthy Choice noodles. - 10/1/13

  • Excellent! I added carrots and didn't have any dry soup mix so I substituted a can of french onion soup. Delicious gravy! - 2/26/13

  • My family uses a can of pepsi to make this a pepsi roast. The juice becomes the gravy. Can thicken it if want to. We add carrots (baby or regular peeled) into the roaster pan during the last two hours of cooking. Cook roast at 350 for 3 hours. Very delicious. The pepsi will change the calorie count - 9/10/12
