Lana's notes for this recipe:
I don't know why but the applesauce added makes this one over the top for sure!
Very easy meal in one pot but really a good one I promise!

Personalize This


I prefer to always brown beef in my crockpot recipes
Brown roast all sides in a little olive oil
and butter for best flavor
Mix packets and applesauce together
Add one cup of water to mix well
Place roast in crockpot
Cover it with sauce
If cooking longer add vegetables later so they won't disappear into the gravy
I sometimes cook longer than 8 hours if a larger roast it falls apart in the gravy and is even more delicious !

Two cups water add to gravy and onion soup packets then add applesauce and mix well
You can also use fresh extra slices of onions with other veggies if desired.( our grands don't like to see them )
