Cin Straw's' notes for this recipe:
Sandy (a good JAP friend) inspired me to make a pot roast with her '3-Ingredient Pork Roast' she posted (although mine is a '9-Ingredient Beef Roast').

Yes, I used a Beef roast instead.

I went/hurried right out to the store and bought a beef roast, a few carrots, some new potatoes, along with some celery.

Also had to get the cream of mushroom soup and lipton onion soup mix she'd suggested (but I got garlic roasted cream of mushroom soup instead of plain).

Then came home and put it all in my crockpot.

Directions

1
I salted, peppered and browned the roast first in a skillet.
Then started it in the crockpot w/the mushroom soup (plus 3/4 can of water), 1-pkt lipton onion soup mix and stuck in a bay leaf.
Started this on the High heat setting.
2
After it was in about an hour, I put in the carrots an celery, turned the heat down to medium.
3
Then 4 hours later, I added the potatoes and onion, lowered the heat to low.
4
Left it on allllll night, the gravy is so thick and the house smelled out of this world all night long.
5
This morning I removed it from the crockpot and put it all into a large casserole dish, let it cool off, and set it in the refrig.
I will warm it up later to serve.

Sandy......Thanks for the reminder, I needed a Pot Roast fix w/all the trimmings and....this one was such an EZ one to make!!!

P.S Today we had some of it for an early lunch....delicious. There was enough left to share a portion w/my Step Mom, and still have leftovers for us (for a couple of days).

My Hubby wants me to make my 'Beer Bread' to go with it for dinner this evening.
Maybe some thick wide noodles to pour that great gravy over. It made a lot of juice/gravy.

Maybe tomorrow we will have open-face sammies on the 'Beer Bread'...smash the potatoes and put on top, then drown it in the delicious gravy it made.

We did eat a small portion for an early lunch and it is delicious.
I've been making my Beer Bread for decades so know it will be wonderful (never fails).

My daughter loves beer bread, problem is we never have any in the house cause my husband is allergic to the hops ! Suppose you can buy one bottle? not sure ~

We don't drink either...so when I need some I just buy a 6 pack of long neck bottel beer and put it out in the frig thats on the back porch. When I need it...it's there.
