Pot roast in the crock pot

This is my mom’s recipe… warning, you will have plenty of leftovers! The amount of vegetables will depend on the size of your crock pot.

1 3-lb chuck roast
baby carrots
red potatoes, quartered
1 packet french onion soup mix


  1. Using saute pan over medium heat on stove top, sear roast on all sides.
  2. Put roast into crock pot.
  3. Top with roughly equal amounts of baby carrots and quartered red potatoes until crock pot is nearly full.
  4. Add french onion soup mix on top.
  5. Pour in water until all carrots and potatoes are submerged.
  6. Cook on low for at least 6 hours (all day is OK).

If you want to get fancy, you can slice up a couple of yellow onions and brown them in the pan after the roast, then add to the crock pot along with the other veggies. Serve with bread for lots of sopping goodness.
