Crock Pot Roast with Gravy

Gretchen ***


This always makes a tender roast and the gravy is sooo good.
I usually use a chuck roast or sirloin tip- whatever is on sale.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a really easy to prepare, and so delicious. The perfect recipe to make when having guests. It's just so easy to make, you'll have even more time to spend with everyone.


2-3 lb. roast of choice
1 Tbsp
kitchen bouquet*
3/4 c
beef broth
1 can(s)
cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg
onion soup mix
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp
red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1/2 tsp
dried thyme
1/4 tsp
black pepper
2 Tbsp
2 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

In a medium bowl, combine broth, mushroom soup, onion soup mix, Worcestershire, red wine vinegar, garlic, thyme, and pepper.
Stir to mix well and set aside.
Rub kitchen bouquet over the roast, coating all sides.
Heat a little oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Brown both sides of the roast ( you'll know it's ready to flip when the meat no longer sticks).
Transfer to the crock pot.
Reduce heat to medium and add butter to skillet. When melted add flour. Cook for a minute, stirring with a whisk.
Add gravy from bowl to skillet. Using a whisk, loosen up brown bits from the bottom of the skillet. Continue to cook until thickened.
Pour gravy over roast.
Cover and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours, or until roast is fall-apart tender. Serve over buttered egg noodles.

* Kitchen Bouquet is a browning/seasoning sauce that helps to add color and a little flavor to meats and gravy. You can usually find it in the grocery with the Worcestershire sauce. If you click on the picture next to step 1, you'll see what it looks like- a little brown bottle with yellow cap and a yellow label.
