Perfect Pot Roast is a flavorful, tender roast that slow cooks in the Crock Pot.

I hope you all had a really great Valentines day! ♥ I had to work all day, but still had a good one. It was so nice to come home to a clean and spotless house, and laundry folded and put away, courtesy of my hubby! Gosh, I love that man. He is the best! : )

Okay, on with the roast. This one is my favorite. Okay, I know I say that about every recipe, but this roast really is delish! It is packed full of flavor, and its another easy one to throw into the beloved crock-pot! It makes a gravy that is to die for! This is another recipe my sweet lil’ sis Lindsey gave me. Lin and I love swapping recipes and telling each other about new dishes we’ve made and loved. I’m pretty sure one of her friends told her about this one. I think she saw it on a popular T.V. show here in Utah called, ‘Good Things Utah’.

This roast is also really good when made into a sandwich as well. Put some onto a toasted hoagie roll with melted cheese. Oh goodness!! It’s kinda like a ‘french dip’. Dip it into the gravy it makes and you’ll be in pure heaven! I call it ‘Perfect Pot Roast’ because I believe it is Perfect! You’ll believe me once you try it! PROMISE!

  1. I’ve been making mine (basically) this way for YEARS! Except I add carrots and potatoes. I’ve also realized that I like the “Beefy” onion soup mix much better. I’ve also never tried it with beef bullion. I’ll have to try that.

  2. Pot roast is one of our most favorite meals. I have been making a very similar recipe to yours for years but I use Campbells Beefy Mushroom soup. I also add carrots & potatoes to make a complete meal. I like another’s suggestion to use the beefy onion dry soup. Will purchase that next time I make this. Thanks

  3. I’m new to using a crock pot. Have you made this with potatoes and carrots? Would I change the cooking time at all if I added those? Would you advise me to put the carrots and potatoes below the meat or on top? Thanks! 🙂

    1. Bre, Keep the cooking time the same when adding diced carrots and potatoes, and I would put those on top of the roast. Hope you enjoy this recipe. 🙂

  4. Just made this today..cooked on high for only 6 hours and that was way too long for the meat, unless you enjoy eating leather! The flavoring was perfect, however, I did not put my vegetables, carrots, onions, celery and potatoes in until 2 hrs before it was due to be done, and they were perfect, and I added just a little cornstarch to thicken stew. In my opinion, I would only cook meat on high 3 to 4 hours, adding veggies for the the last 2 hours!

  5. I made this for the first time and it was delicious! The roast was perfect! I was reluctant to try this recipe because I do not like mushrooms. I read the reviews and decided to try it. I used Cream of Potato soup in place of the Mushroom Soup and I used Liptons Beefy Onion Soup. It was perfect! The roast was tender and moist and we loved it.

  6. I make mine almost the same way but I cook it with my potatoes and carrots. Do you ever do this? I also usually put 1 cup of water. Do you think it would cook the potatoes and carrots ok if I omit the water and use what you have?

  7. How do you make sure the bouillon Cube gets dissolved and mixed equally around in the soup mixture? Looks good but hesitant to make seems like it would need some type of liquid
