This roast is cooking up in my crockpot right now and it smells amazing!!! I've made the traditional Cream of Mushroom Soup Roast forever, but my husband just doesn't love it. (I'm thinkin' he's a little on the picky side!)
Anyways, from the aroma in my kitchen I have a feeling he's gonna love this one, I'll let you know after dinner! (If you're not a fan of the traditional pot roast, you may want to also try out these Open Faced French Dip Sandwiches or these Italian Roast Wraps . . . yummmm!)
Here's what you'll need . . .
1 (2 pound) boneless beef bottom round roast or chuck pot roast On Sale $3.69/lb. (probably not the best price ever, but it'll still be way cheaper than the drive-thru!)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound potato, cut into wedges Idaho Potatoes, 5 lb bag, $2.69, use $1/1 Produce Target Coupon
3 cups fresh or frozen whole baby carrots
1 medium onion, thickly sliced Yellow Onions, 3 lb bag, On Sale $1.99 use $1/1 Produce Target Coupon
2 teaspoons dried basil leaves, crushed
2 (10.25 ounce) cans Campbell's® Beef Gravy $1.19 at Publix, use $.50/4 from 10/31 SS or $.50/3 from Publix Share Something Delicious Booklet (Manufacturer Coupon) ; Campbell’s Gravy is also on sale $0.49 at Kroger
Season roast with garlic powder. Sear meat in oil on all sides (I just did the bottom and top, I can never seem to sear the sides correctly!) Meanwhile, layer potatoes, carrots & onions in slow cooker. Once meat is seared, place in cooker and sprinkle with basil. Dump in Campbell's gravy, and cook on low 10-11 hours or high 5-6 hours. Enjoy!
Update – we just finished this up tonight and it was so good! The only addition I might make when I do it again is I'll add a beef bouillon cube to the crockpot in the morning, then make sure it dissolves throughout the day. It could have used a little more flavor in my opinion, but I'm pretty sure that would do the trick!
