You only use five ingredients and some seasoning and no pre-cooking or browning to make this super easy pot roast. Small effort and great to enjoy after a long day or shoveling snow. A family favorite for years.
In a bowl, combine onion soup mix, mushroom soup, undrained canned mushrooms and garlic powder. Whisk in liquid.
Trim excess fat and bones from roast, Place meat into bottom of crock pot.
Pour soup mixture over meat. Cover and set crockpot to "High." Cook for 6-8 hours until meat falls apart. Salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over mashed potatoes or buttered noodles with a veggie on the side.
ALTERNATE COOKING METHOD: If you don't want to wait for the crockpot, follow all the same steps but put meat in a covered casserole or foil covered metal pan in the oven at 325 degrees for 2.5 to 3 hours.
