Tender roast simmers in a rich gravy that is full of flavor. This Perfect Pot Roast is great for any weekday or weekend dinner!
Picture this with me, it’s a beautiful fall day with leaves falling from the trees. You’re cozy inside with a cup of hot cocoa reading a book. You get to relax and enjoy a little ‘me’ time because dinner is cooking in the slow cooker. 🙂 The irresistible aroma of the Perfect Pot Roast fills the home with love and the comforting scent of dinner.
This recipe will get you one step closer in making this picturesque moment a reality. This roast is just that; perfect. Tender and juicy rump roast simmered for hours until it practically falls apart on its own.
Perfect Pot Roast is so delicious, and makes for amazing leftovers to eat throughout the week. One of my favorite functions of this recipe is the day after meal! I love to use the leftover meat for French dips. Load this meat up on a hearty bun and top it off with a little of your homemade gravy, and provolone cheese. *chef’s kiss*
HOW LONG DO I NEED TO COOK THE ROAST?
I recommend cooking on low for at least 9 to 10 hours. You can also cook on high for 6 to 8 hours if you’re in a bit of a time pinch.
DO I MAKE THE GRAVY SEPARATE FROM THE ROAST?
The gravy is created as the roast cooks in the slow cooker!
CAN I USE ANOTHER CANNED SOUP INSTEAD OF CREAM OF MUSHROOM?
Of course! Try substituting Cream of Celery or Cream of Potato soup instead.
