3-Ingredient Crock Pot Roast

With future MIL laid up due to surgery, G and I took on an active role in the kitchen today making dinner to enjoy some family time. The weather finally turned to Spring, so we were able to celebrate the warmth with open doors and bird songs accompanying our supper as well. It was a great Sunday!

This roast recipe is super easy and always pleases the taste buds of all who try it! Paired with the right sides, it makes for a simple and tasty dinner for all your family members and friends to enjoy. It is definitely not the healthiest meal I make, but we all need to splurge every now and then…

Only 3 ingredients for the best flavored roast ever!

I am all about simple crock pot entrees when I plan to make some time-extensive side dishes. So this roast recipe is one of my favorites handed down from my mother. I’ve used it for Friendsgivings in the past and family get-togethers, plus meal prepping for the week! Depending on the size of your roast, it can go a long way. Its rich and flavorful gravy only accentuates the moist meat and makes for a crowd-pleaser for sure!


  • 1 5-6 pound chuck roast
  • 1 package dry onion soup
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup


  1. Place chuck roast in crockpot
  2. Sprinkle package of dry onion soup
  3. Pour cream of mushroom soups over top
  4. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water (the more water, the thinner the gravy)
  5. Cook on low for 8 hours
  6. Once finished cooking, shred to desired texture and serve immediately.

Serve with your favorite veggies and side item. The gravy is especially good with mashed cauliflower or jasmine rice.

Our dinner tonight included crack potatoes and zucchini fries on the side, with a bit of blueberry pie and ice cream for dessert. Not the most healthy, but what’s a cheat Sunday from time to time?! Delish!

Enjoy, friends!
